Wheelchair athlete Jerry Forde hits 300 marathons!

Our very own Jerry Forde has finally reached the magic 300 marathon mark! At the Waterfront Marathon in Clonakilty last Saturday the 6th of December 2014, Jerry crossed the line in an emotional finish to record another major milestone.

It has taken Jerry just 3 years to rack up the last 100 having hit the 200 mark back in Oct 2011 at the Dublin City Marathon.

As a wheelchair athlete, the Blarney man has certainly completed more marathons than anyone else in the UK and Ireland. It's quite possible he has more than anyone in Europe and quite possibly the world. If there is anyone else out there then they're keeping a very low profile!

When I asked Jerry about his next target, it was 400 of course.....although he does have his eye on a few interesting 'projects' along the way ;o)

A list of Jerry Forde's marathon can be seen on his website...
