One of our sponsored athletes (Jack Sinclair) did the 42.2 km Brisbane Marathon yesterday and had the pleasure of meeting one of the better known marathon runners in Australia – yes, it’s Marathon Man!
Marathon Man has run a staggering 40+ marathons in the last 40 months – including the 256km Marathon des Sables through the Sahara Desert in 2008 and the 90km Comrades Marathon in South Africa in 2010.
Marathon Man runs for 2 reasons:
- to raise money for Facing Africa
- to encourage other people to run a marathon (Marathon Man says 99% of people could easily run a marathon)
A Great Guy Running To Help Others
We see it a lot in our line of work – athletes pushing their body to the extreme to raise funds for others.
Loving your work Marathon Man.
