This is the story of 42 marathon runners who were created as the Ever-presents by the London Marathon in 1995 after they had run 15 consecutive years of the London from the start in 1981 Their story is a testimony to a 'never say die' spirit that sustained them during the thousands of marathons they have run all over the world. Dale Lyons, one of remaining 15, has combined a detailed factual record from his research with the runners with many heart warming anecdotes and astonishing hardship stories to track the Ever-presents journey over 33 years. Their triumphs and cruel disappointments, the amazing sums raised for countless charities, their startling records at home and abroad and their absorbing and colourful lives away from the marathon treadmill makes for absorbing and enlightening reading. This is a book to honour their commitment to London, one of the greatest city Marathons and to provide a lasting tribute to a rapidly diminishing group, decimated by injury, accident, illness and death. The book will provide information, inspiration, and motivation not only to marathon runners but to those watching the London each year thinking "that could be me!" 4
