Paul Thompson- Masters Runner

Paul Thompson (in his own words):
I’ve been a serious runner – some might say obsessive – for many years. My early running years were in the United Kingdom where I grew up, running for traditional harriers clubs in the Midlands, South London and West Yorkshire and representing town, county and region. I spent several years living and running in South East Asia and then moved to New York in 2004. A year later, I turned 40. I have consistently been the top masters’ runner in the New York area and often ranked as one of the top masters runners in the US by Running Times and UK by Athletics Weekly. And in November 2016 I won a gold medal in the half marathon for M50-54 at the World Masters Athletics Championships. At the 2018 champs I got silver in the same event. My goal is simple but immensely challenging: to slow the aging process by staying as fast as possible for as long as possible.
