David Smith - Pharmacist | Ultra-marathon runner | Quintuple Ironman triathlete

David has completed over 100 marathons and ultra marathons, much of the time in fancy dress to raise money for a number of fantastic charities. He has completed numerous Ironman races and can even call himself a quintuple Ironman; this quite literally involves racing 5x the distance of a standard Ironman! Whilst raising over £105,000 for the charities he supports he has managed to achieve 38 Guinness World Records.

In 2018 he ran the Cape Wrath Ultra, an 8 day 400km race up the west coast of Scotland. In 2019 he ran the 215 mile non stop Race Across Scotland in 88 hours.

Even though David doesn't follow a completely plant based diet, he has a regular B12 injection at his pharmacy in Dronfield as part of his routine as an ultra-distance athlete. 

David has been very busy fundraising during the Coronavirus pandemic - read more about his back garden marathons in this BBC article https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/52418660
