         Tags: Ashok Kumar, six Marathon Majors

A Malayalee with a record of running for six major Marathons, including London, New York, Boston, Berlin, Tokyo and Chicago that is Ashok Kumar from Croydon, South London. He has done all these six “Marathon Majors” in two and a half years. There are just over 1000 people in the world who achieved this recognition and Ashok Kumar is the first Malayali in the world to have done all six Marathon Majors and sixth person of India or Indian origin.

He has been a resident of Croydon for the last 38 years and actively involved in Croydon’s voluntary and community sector working with a variety of local charities and community organisations. He has been a trustee and Treasurer of Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA) and Vice President of Croydon BME Forum and an independent member of Croydon Council’s Ethics Committee.

Ashok Kumar has raised £15,000 for various Charities. That includes Get Kids Going (Charity for disabled children), British Diabetic Association, Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and Action Against Hunger (This British Charity provides food and medicine to save the lives of thousands of children dying of hunger and malnutrition in Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen).

He is a full time civil servant at the HMRC as Inspector of Taxes and is happy to help and share his experience with anyone with a desire to get involved and make a positive contribution to changing the lives of fellow human beings who are less privileged than many of us.  He can be contacted by email or phone/WhatsApp on 07974349318.
