Marathon Weekend for Leevale Athletes

The world’s elite marathon runners will descend on Berlin for the 42nd BMW Berlin Marathon this weekend. Leading the men’s charge on the fastest marathon course in the world is Eliud Kipchoge, who hopes to demonstrate that he is the best marathon runner in the world. His competition comes from Emmanuel Mutai, who is the third-fastest marathon runner of all times and Geoffrey Mutai, who has won major marathons like New York (twice), Boston and Berlin.

We wish Leevale athletes Lizzie Lee, Mark Hanrahan, Brian Hegarty & Donal Coffey the very best in their endeavours to post fast marathon times.

We also wish the best to all the Leevale ladies who will run the Evening Echo Women’s MiniMarathon in Cork on Sunday.
