Taylor Prescott is set for his most remarkable endurance challenge to date as the teenager vows to keep driving the Steve Prescott Foundation forward.

Taylor will join the charity’s Wembley Lockdown Challenge to run seven ultra marathons in seven days, completing a virtual 216 mile journey to Wembley for what would have been Challenge Cup Final day.
That’s almost 31 miles per day for seven consecutive days, for a runner who usually goes no further than 10k.
“I enjoy running more than cycling and walking to be honest,” said the 18-year old as he announced his challenge.
“Normally I run once or twice a week and a maximum 10k. Last week I did a 22 mile run and I felt alright so I was testing the waters.”

Since losing his dad in 2013, Taylor has thrown himself into a series of challenges alongside mother Linzi, brother Koby and their army of SPF ambassadors and supporters.
Last summer on the 10th anniversary of Steve’s epic 900-mile cycle, 27-mile row, and 13-mile run from Perpignan to Wembley, Taylor led from the front to complete the same gruelling 13-day challenge with a team of fundraisers.

And the announcement of his first solo challenge would make even Steve’s eyes water.
“It’s going to be difficult backing up each day, trying to get the rest in. Most of the other challenges have been with a team so I’ve had team spirit and motivation. This one is going to be a lot tougher mentally and physically”.

Steve Prescott was diagnosed with the rare cancer pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) in 2006 and given just months to live. He set up the SPF and embarked on a series of gruelling endurance challenges, raising almost half a million pounds before his death seven years later. The Foundation has gone from strength to strength since the loss of its founder and inspiration.

“I know my dad is inspiring people now,” says Taylor.
“With the coronavirus this year has been difficult for the SPF so I want to raise funds and help the RFL Benevolent Fund too for Mose Masoe and The Christie.
“I’m hoping me dad is watching me and that he’s proud.”

The SPF Wembley Lockdown Challenge is open to everyone and is now up and running, finishing on July 18. All entrants can choose to virtually run, walk or cycle the distance from their hometown club to Wembley. Over £8000 has already been raised by the 60 entrants and counting, whose fundraising efforts for the SPF will be rewarded with a special Precky t-shirt and challenge certificate.
Taylor will complete his challenge in the final week, with Linzi providing support, and GPW Recruitment St Helens 10k Winner Matt Crehan and his St Helens Shop “Made to Run” will be providing nutritional and running advice.
