We are delighted to introduce you to our Runners Diary Podcast CCM leaders. The plan is to follow their journey over the coming months and track their training and progress. The journey will be similar to many and as we go through the weeks we will discuss the highs and lows and the obstacles people encounter no matter what their level. We will also keep in touch with the leaders through a blog.
So here they are
Ruairi O’Hagan – Ruairi joined us in our build up to the Dublin Marathon in 2022 but unfortunately several days before the big event he was struck down with Covid so has come back for another attempt at his first marathon in Cork. The superstar radio presenter is a great friend of the show and an active member of the Watergrasshill club.
Martin O’Leary – Martin is an experienced runner and marathon runner but having been out of the sport for a while, he is now taking on the CCM again. Martin is a member of the Eagle AC club and we look forward to tracking his progress.
Rachael O’Callaghan – Rachael is another who has been there and done it over the distance before. Rachael like many fell away from running in Covid times and saw the marathon as a great opportunity to focus and to get back on course. Rachael is a member of the Carraig Na bhFear AC Club.
Joanne Dawson – Similar to the other RDCCM leaders, Joanne has been over the marathon distance several times. Over the years Joanne has overcome many challenges and running is something that has helped her through those times.
We look forward to tracking the above athletes, we will also have several guests on over the coming weeks to help runners of all levels and this will increase as we get closer to the big day. If you have any questions you would like to pose to us or our leaders then make sure to drop us a line.
