AN ultra-marathon runner will be stopping by Bradford this weekend as he completes seven marathons in seven days in aid of Prostate Cancer.

Kevin Webber, 53, is completing the 183 mile challenge to coincide with Non-League Football Day, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK.

On Friday, he will complete his penultimate marathon when he reaches Guiseley AFC after trekking from Harrogate Town, before leaving Nethermoor Park for Bradford (Park Avenue) in time for their 3pm kick off against Kidderminster Harriers. He will then set off on his final leg to The Shay for FC Halifax Town’s teatime match against Chesterfield, which is live on BT Sport.

In total the charity walker, from Epsom in Surrey, will visit ten non-league clubs, hand delivering unique captains’ armbands to be worn by teams on Non-League Day, and he will also be wearing special half-and-half jerseys representing the teams he is visiting.

Mr Webber was diagnosed with advanced incurable terminal prostate cancer in 2014, aged 49, with three young children, and was told he may only have two years left to live.

Since he has raised more than £200,000 for the charity, taking part in ultra-marathons and last year’s March for Men led by Jeff Stelling which visited Valley Parade.

Mr Webber said: “In 2014, at the age of 49, when I was told I may only have two years to live, my whole world came crashing down.

“All I could think about was ‘two years’. A few months later, after my first session of chemotherapy, I even had a thought that I would never run again, but I decided not to let the cancer win.

“Instead I ran for 3 slow miles that day and kept on running further and further day by day.

“Since 2015, I have completed many marathons and ultra-marathons including, my bucket list dream, the Marathon des Sables and the Likeys 6633 Arctic Ultra in Canada beyond the Arctic Circle.

“I’ve met some wonderful people in the last few years and everyone has been so generous in helping me raise much needed funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

“I have loved football at all levels all my life and it has blown me away that the National League and Vanarama have chosen to add their weight to stopping prostate cancer being a killer.

“My personal March for Men is my small way of saying thanks to them, and also doing my bit to help raise awareness and funds for this indiscriminate family-wrecker of a disease.”

Michael Tatershall, chief executive of the National League, added: “Kevin’s challenge is truly incredible and at The National League, and as part of the wider football family, we can’t help but be inspired and enthused to support him.

“Prostate Cancer UK are our first ever charity partner and we are thrilled to be working side by side with them and Vanarama to help raise funds and awareness to combat this deadly disease and support men like Kevin and their loved ones.”
