1 TAM stands for Team AKOBE Marathon.

2 AKOBE is a combination of letters from David's dogs, all malamutes - Akela (who has passed away), Kobe and Ekko.

3 TAM is funded by money left to David by his parents. He said: "Mum and dad would have supported the community aspect of TAM. I subsidise it with help from donations."

4 The five Couch to Marathon medals cost a suggested donation of PS25.

5 You can walk, run or canicross each session.

6 Each person who completes a Team AKOBE Marathon recorded by David receives a black medal, free of charge.

7 A dog that completes TAM while leashed to the owner gets a yellow medal, which is also free.
