Summary of Peter Taylor:
Peter Taylor started running in 1984 and with being exhausted towards the end of the marathon, he took off his running shoes and has never put them on again. He has completed seven Comrades marathons, at least fifteen other ultra-marathons, one Cape Town Cycle Tour and more than seventy marathons with his 30th Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon coming up.
Peter was the first person in South Africa to raise money while running in a race. He decided to combine his love of animals with his fundraising and approached GDA for permission to collect funds. In 1986, he donned a homemade orange rucksack, adapted for people to throw change into and this bag has successfully seen him through 29 Ultra Marathons with a few adaptions! They have travelled a long, long way together!
Look out for Peter and his current puppy in training, Nomad as they cross the finish line together hoping to raise at least R50 000.00 and lots of awareness for the cause.
