Hundreds of people from across Donegal will head to Dublin today to prepare for tomorrow’s Dublin City Marathon.
The long miles have been done and tomorrow morning at 9am sees all that hard work pay off.
Groups and individuals from across the county will be trying to put mind over matter for the 26.2 mile course.
Among those taking part will be a group from Milford and also a group from Mulroy College in Milford.
Father and daughter Labhaoise and Seamus Temple will be encouraging eachother all the way.
Others include Ronan Brophy, Mickey Doherty and manager of the Finn Valley Centre Conor McGonagle.
While it may be a first for some, one man from Letterkenny is somewhat of a veteran.
Peter McGlynn from Bomany will be doing (at last count!) his 102nd marathon when he crosses the line tomorrow.
Senator Jimmy Harte, who has completed twelve marathons in total, wished all Donegal athletes the best of luck.
“I hope everyone gets around safe and enjoys themselves.
“It’s a great feeling to take part in a marathon and anyone who does it should feel proud of themselves,” he said.Tags:
