Ryan’s Marathon Challenge for Phab Charity

Elite global runner Ryan McGuire will take part in the TCS London Marathon this weekend to raise awareness of the charity Phab.


As the UK’s leading national charity in providing safe and fun activities for people with and without disabilities, Phab played a crucial role in finding a guide runner who would be able to keep up with Ryan.


Despite being on the Autistic Spectrum with delayed development, living with Apraxia, and having limited speaking abilities, Ryan is one of the world’s top athletes. He achieved an elite-level time of 2:52:57 during the Chicago Marathon in October last year.


Running is Ryan’s passion. Over the previous six months, he has consistently trained for the London Marathon with his dad, Martin, in the hope of achieving another elite time between 2:45:00 and 2:48:00 in this year’s race.


He will line up for this year’s TCS London Marathon on Sunday (April 21) with guide runner, Darryl May.


“I’m very excited to run the London Marathon for Phab, as I want to demonstrate that being disabled shouldn’t hold anyone back from achieving their dreams,” said 22-year-old Ryan.


“I can’t wait to take part!”
