One of the real success stories of this marathon were the amount of fit4life members who
participated. Members such as John Gibbons, Tony Gleeson, Maggie Heneghan, Ann Mc
Donnell, Damien Glackin, as well as other participants on the day which included fit4life
members Pauline Clerkin and Ann Shortt some taking part in their first ever marathons.
Well done to all members on some really fine performances!
