Having competed in every event since 1981, Neil Atherton is rightly known as Mr. Tour of Tameside.

The 54-year-olds efforts were officially acknowledged with a commemorative plaque at the end of the 2017 event.

Neil will be taking part in all four legs, which begin on on Thursday, June 13 with the Cross Trail 10k, followed by the Hell on the Fell on Friday, the Hero Half Marathon on Saturday, and concluding with the Hyde 7 Mile on Sunday.

Neil spoke to us at Active Tameside’s ITrain in Dukinfield on Monday.
