Guest post : The Legend Jerry Forde takes on the Alexander the Great Marathon

Guest post from Claire O'Brien...*GOOD LUCK JERRY!* ... by Claire O'Brien




This weekend, the legend that is Jerry Forde is about to achieve a life-long ambition, and complete a marathon in Greece! Jerry will participate in the “Alexander the Great Marathon” in Thessaloniki. This will be his 445th marathon and Jerry will earn another marathon medal to add to his collection! ๐Ÿ˜Š

It has taken months of meticulous planning to enable this to happen...with a few “bumps” along the way! The most recent being Jerry misplacing his passport!! Luckily, with a bit of help from Lord Mayor Mick Finn and also Simon Coveney, we were able to arrange an emergency one with hours to spare!!!! As we speak, Jerry is on a sight seeing tour around Greece, and is looking forward to being at the start line tomorrow! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป For anyone that would like to tune in, it starts at 6am Irish time, and should be streamed live on this link. https://webtv.ert.gr/ert3-live/

Best of luck Jerry! You are a true inspiration! ☘️๐Ÿƒ‍♂️๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
