Paul Selby

Paul’s involvement with running dates back over 35 years. Having emigrated from the UK to South Africa in 1971 Paul established his own engineering company and in 1983 entered a team for a company relay. Having painstakingly completed an 11km leg, he had been bitten by the ‘running bug’!

Notable achievements include 24 Comrades Marathons including a 180km Comrades Back to Back which he ran in 1999 for charity along with a 1000 mile in 1000 hours event also for charity in conjunction with the Flora London Marathon in 2003. Add to this 6 Iron Man and a current tally of 685 marathon and ultra-marathons, not to mention several thousand shorter events, Paul has one of the largest world collections of running medals in his locker!

During Paul’s early running days he recognised the poor quality of sports medals in the market and decided to do something about it and went into production! So he asked, “What race medal would I wish to receive when completing the event?” and applied this ‘acid test’ to all race organisers he came into contact with. Paul prides himself that while supplying several million award medals into the world market each year, he never let anyone down by seeing each and every order right through to its final destination.

Paul has recently undergone several health issues but is currently back on the road training for his 25th Comrades Marathon. Paul’s slogan is, “My Passion – Your Pride” so you can be sure that Medaltime will supply well priced, good quality sports medals well on time!
