In three weeks time 20,000 people will be waking up with sore muscles but a soaring spirit having completed the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon.
The race has long been sold out and runners have been building up their preparation over recent months competing in the Race Series that concluded with the Half Marathon two weeks ago.
One of the key elements of this year’s race is the focus on the individual stories that lie behind each competitors motivation for competing and today’s daily video is a highlight of some of those who have been through so much to get to the start never mind the finish line.
These are stories which embody why the Marathon is so much more that a riun over 42 kilometres and how it can serve as a spark to change lives.
Well done to the team behind #TwentyThousandStories for bringing these four to our attention.
