Eric Davies takes on The Salomon Trail Marathon for Prostate Cymru.

Eric Davies Trail Marathon

Eric Davies took on the incredible challenge of completing the Trail Marathon for Prostate Cymru and raised an incredible £925.

Eric completed the 26 mile Salomon Trail Marathon Wales route in the stunning trails and tracks of the world-renowned Coed y Brenin forest in the Snowdonia National Park.

Speaking after the race, Eric said, “Three months ago, I didn’t think I’d be running my ninth Trail Marathon Wales. When I was referred for an ‘urgent’ prostatectomy on 18 March, I assumed I’d be having surgery within a matter of weeks. But here I am today and I couldn’t be happier. “

He continued, “My training only picked up in mid-April, after I recovered from Covid, so I’ve put in a lot of effort to get myself fit for this. But it paid off: I’ve done a much better time than expected and feel fine.

“Today has been a wonderful gift. It’s been emotional – I’ve had loads of hugs and good wishes – and I wouldn’t have swapped it for the world.”

Eric’s training paid off and he finished the marathon in a fantastic 4.51.43!
