Stafford Half Marathon 2021: Meet our Runners

Daniel Phillips, Sneyd Green 

“My wonderful Dad, Rob Phillips has this year faced the challenge of bowel cancer head on, supported by his wonderful wife Chris. The care from the Colorectal team at UHNM has been awe-inspiring. Over five months I’ll be running at least 800 km to raise funds for the wonderful Colorectal team who have provided 800 hours of wonderful care for my dad throughout his treatment.”

“My efforts are simply to show how much I appreciate their care and all that they have done and continue to do for my Dad. Ahead of the race, I did my last long run on  Monday.”


Iona Botfield, Stafford 

“Throughout 2021 I am doing a virtual Lands End to John O’Groats distance challenge which will involve me running a total of 1,083 miles (1,743km) throughout the year. I’m doing this challenge in order to raise money for Ward 216 at the Royal Stoke.”

“In July 2020 we had our little boy Harry and unfortunately he had to spend almost a week receiving expert care from the fantastic doctors, nurses and consultants on the ward. I want to repay their hard work supporting little ones at their most vulnerable, and the kindness and compassion they showed to us parents by raising vital funds for the ward.”

“I’ll be doing a mixture of casual running from home, 10k races and the Stafford Half Marathon. Fitting the distance around returning to work full time and juggling a baby will be a big challenge for me!”
