Since reading the book about his life I would have to say John "Ghost runner" Tarrant, a man who loved to run so much that he wouldn't even let a lifetime ban stop him from competing. A truly inspirational individual who didn't let anything (or anyone) stand in the way of his dreams. Just a shame he was never allowed to compete in the Olympics

I would put in Joss Naylor the feld runner. What a legend, Up and down Scaffeld Pike 70 times in his 70th year

'The Ghost Runner' John Tarrant would be a brilliant story to share with your readers. His life long battle with the archaic rule setters led him to achieve greatness in a much less obvious way. A truly inspiring insight in to the life of a determined yet selfish superb distance runner.
