Dave Taylor Teams Up For Treadmill World Record 2009: Taylor 57

Dave Taylor teams up for treadmill world record

Taylor, 57, will be attempting to run more than 811km from October 17 to 24, and earn a place in the Guinness Book of
Records. At the same time, he will raise funds for the police injury fund, the PCYC and the Kerryn McCann breast cancer appeal. McCann, a dual Commonwealth Games marathon champion, died of breast cancer last year. When Taylor announced his record attempt, the world record was 736km, but United States airman Brendan Brustad set a new distance of 811km in Oklahoma City last month. “That’s just made me keener to break the world record,” Taylor said. Taylor’s support team, headed by his manager-coach, former Australia rugby league international and Wests Illawarra director John Dorahy, and World Masters athletics champion, Marie Kay, will play a crucial role in his attempt. The team includes Taylor’s sidekick Garry “Forrest” Preston, Kembla Joggers runner Marty Weston, statistician Peter Clarke, Wests Illawarra marketing manager Stacey Crobeski and Wave FM’s Dave “Stretto” Stretton. “I’m very pleased and honoured to work with Dave on his next and final run for charity,” Dorahy said.
“He’s a champion guy that’s done some wonderful things in charitable events over past years and this particular one is for the Kerryn McCann breast cancer appeal along with the police injury fund and PCYC, so I think it’s a fantastic cause.”
