He set his first world record at the age of 65 - having only begun running competitively in his 50s - and in 2009 broke four national and two world records at a single event, the Self-Transcendence 24-Hour Race at the south London venue.

In 2010, Oliver told Runners' World: "Most of the new runners seem to prefer distances under 10 miles, which is a shame because ultra-running teaches you the perfect mixture of physical and psychological control."
