Marathon Club Ireland featured on Irish TV

Marathon Club Ireland (MCI) as the name suggest is a club for marathon runners in Ireland. They were established in 2010 and currently have about 200 members from all over the country.

There was a recent 24 minute long feature on Irish TV about the club and a recent marathon held in Westmeath.

Programme description........"This week’s Westmeath County Matters looks at the work of Marathon Club Ireland who recently held an event at Lilliput Adventure Centre outside Mullingar. We chat to the Chairperson and PRO of Marathon Club Ireland about how the club came about; We meet David and Sandra of Team Kerr, whose son is confined to a wheelchair, and they explain how marathons have become a family occasion with the purchase of a very special chair; Several runners aged from 68-78 talk to us about what marathons bring to their lives; and we speak with Eimear Hurley, who was a finalist in RTE’s ‘Fittest Family’, about her experiences in Lilliput."

If you have any interest in running marathons then I think you'll find it of interest. You find it HERE
