Stuart Storey presents the story of one of Britain's greatest ever fictional runners, comic strip hero Alf Tupper, who ran after a day's welding and a helping of fish and chips.

Stuart Story presents the legend of Alf Tupper, an inspiration for British sportsmen over three decades, a plucky working-class hero who set records on the international running track in his time out from welding, and all without leaving the printed page!
