Phil Sesemann

Long distance runner


Residing in Leeds, the 29 year-old long distance runner and NHS Doctor made his marathon debut at the London 2021 Marathon in October. Clocking 2:12:58 to finish in 7th place, Sesemann was the first British finisher.

With his busy schedule, it is vital that Phil has a structured routine, ensuring that self-care is a priority within this. Phil uses ManCave products to create his ideal personal-care routine, enabling him to take time out for himself - whether that's during his post-run shower, or by applying moisturiser before a shift at the hospital.

ManCave will be supporting Phil's journey, and after his incredible debut performance, we are excited to see where Phil's talent will take him in the future...
