Sasha: “I did the 10K distance. I never thought I could run 10 kilometres! I’ve always struggled with running, I was probably the worst in my class at school. I’ve been running more or less consistently since last October, so it took me about 4 months to get ready for this run. My finishing time was 01:00:57. And of course I took advantage of the “home field” because I was familiar with the place. I feel like it’s a big accomplishment and I’ll be training for half marathon in the nearest months”.

Nino: “I was pleased to take part in the marathon. It was a nice time to enjoy the landscape around Drumshanbo in a different way and with new people. There were actually a lot of people, more than I was expecting. The town is often so quiet, so I was happy to see a bit of crowd! Now I would like to train for the next one!”
