The 100 Marathon Club........a subtle form of lunacy
During the 2008 Cork City Marathon, I noticed for the first time a few strange running tops with '100 Marathon Club' written accross them. At the time, it was hard to believe that anyone would run so many Marathons.

Over the weekend, I was looking at some running websites and came accross a link to 100 Marathon Club website. For full membership, you need to have run 100 full Marathons. You can opt for Associate Membership if you have completed *only* 50 Marathons and your official designation then is a 'Wannabe' ;o)

According to the Records section, at least one person has almost 700 Marathons completed!

Appearently, they even have one full member from Cork.

Somehow, I don't think I'll be joining anytime soon.
