Since our team have recovered from Sunday, we thought we would share with you some amazing pictures captured on the day. We’re completely overwhelmed with the support we have received over the past couple of months, I don’t think there are enough words out there to thank each and every one of you for donating and keeping us in your thoughts during this difficult time.
We will be forever grateful for the kindness and thoughtfulness displayed by everyone during this period 💚
Firstly, we would like to thank our marathon team (Eamon, John, Rob, Paul, Gary, Louise, Alan and George) – without you this wouldn’t have been possible. To complete a marathon is a huge achievement which you should all be extremely proud of. This was a particularly difficult run for Louise, Alan and George who would have ran alongside Mark in the 2020 marathon on the same route. To complete it without him this year was bittersweet but Mark would be so proud of you all.
To our family and friends who cycled alongside the team and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day – a massive thank you.
For everyone who ran the half marathon, the 10K and 5k – thank you, it kept the team’s morale up and ensured they kept going.
A special mention to DanielleMoore for providing lovely treats and goodies – they were delicious and just what we needed 😋
A huge thank you to heaslip_print works for creating our incredible marathon t-shirts – we will forever cherish these.
Thank you to Acec distributors who very kindly sponsored accommodation for our team.
Finally, we would like to send warm wishes and a huge thank you to Mark’s other family – The Defence Forces. In particular, all members of the 64th Infantry group in Syria who organised a 5k for Marky’s Marathon on Sunday to #RememberMark – well done to all involved and thanks to Aaron Phelan for organising. We wish you all the best on your trip abroad.
Sunday was an amazing yet emotional day. To watch as the team took off on the exact route ran by Mark last year meant so much to everyone involved and is something that will live in our memory for many years to come💚
Mark, Rachel, Meg and Katie x
