The Qool Runnings team will attempt the 2017 Dublin City Marathon on October 29th to raise money for Breakthrough Cancer Research. We've all had someone in our lives affected by cancer, and we believe that preventative research is the best way to help eradicate it entirely.
The Qool Runnings team consists of:
Rory Cawley - "Signing up for the marathon allows me to use the fear of being slagged off by my mates as primary motivation to keep exercising. I keep saying to myself - everything will be alright when I get to the starting line!"
Neil Bowden - "Aging GAA star coming to the end of his football career and taking up Marathon running as opposed to Golf"
Marco Nuti - "Running mainly to undo the damage I do over the weekends, but clearly I'm not doing enough... RUNNING! Going for my 8th Dublin Marathon, best thing about running a marathon? The pint at the end, of course!!!! ...wish me good of luck! "
Simon O'Kane - "The old guy on the team - this is going to hurt - donate lots of money please!"
Jacqueline Bowe - "Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second - Third Time Lucky!"
Sam Gill Murphy - "Controversial up-and-comer in the marathon community, highlights include finishing the Connemarathon in under 4 pints"
Fergal Condron - "Running away from my problems 42km at a time"
