β€œRunning can take us to fantastic places. Just as importantly, it can also bring us back from terrible ones. For people in times of crisis, trauma and physical or mental illness – when normality collapses – running can put things back together again.”

After watching a cricket match in Cape Town, South Africa, three years ago, Phil was mugged – stabbed, punched, kicked and effectively left for dead in a grim, desolate suburb.

Astonishingly, just as he could feel himself starting to drift away, he was scooped up and whisked to hospital by a passing pizza delivery driver. Two deep stab wounds, 15 stitches, three broken ribs, battered liver and stomach, bruised all over.

Phil resolved to put himself back together again by getting back to his first love, running…. And it proved a remarkable way to outrun the demons of PTSD and his blood-soaked pavement. Which is why it became the title of his new book – Outrunning The Demons.

In it, Phil tells of his own experiences and their aftermath – and also interviews 34 people from around the world who, as he says, have been to hell and discovered that the surest, safest, quickest way back was to run.

He interviewed people caught up in 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing; people who have lost loved ones to murder and natural causes; people who have suffered addiction, alcoholism, anxiety, depression, violent and sexual assault; sheer bad luck – and even a nose-diving jet.

The result is a remarkable collection of stories about hope and survival – a genuinely uplifting celebration of the strength of the human spirit and all the good that is unleashed simply through running.

He will be talking about the book, Outrunning The Demons (Bloomsbury, 2019), at Steyning Athletic Club on Saturday 23rd November (7.45pm).

The evening is ticketed, but free to both Steyning AC Members and non-members. The book is priced Β£12.99 and will be available on the night.

Thank you all for the lovely positive comments. I am really really looking forward to seeing you all on the night. Let's all revel together in the fabulous fun and benefits running brings us. Mine is a tough story with plenty of difficult moments, but I can promise a pretty happy ending... and I am looking forward to hearing how running has helped you too. Thanks for having me! See you soon, Phil.

Any club members wishing to attend just need to let me know how many tickets they need 😊

Thank you. Am really looking forward to this.

Could I have 2 tickets, please? Really interesting.

Claire Sam Janine French Hilary Stevens Denise S Andrews Nickie Goodall Vicki McGregor I’ve picked up two tickets. Anyone else fancy it? I can’t seem to share to the group.
