The Cork City Marathon, Ireland's second largest marathon event, took place on the 3rd June and our very own Jayne Storey was there on the starting line when the race began at 9am sharp.
We are so proud of Jayne for her success in the Cork Marathon! She beat her personal best time, was the 287th person across the finish line out of 1207 runners and 21st women across the line and raised a fantastic sum of money for jacobs well. Thank you to everyone who supported Jayne
You can read in our previous post how Jayne battled unexpected weather conditions on the day of her first marathon raising money for jacobs well a year ago in Stockholm. From one extreme to another: this year she ended up with a sunburn! Thanks to Jayne's commitment to months of hard training and a big push on the day itself, she has been able to raise a fantastic sum of money for jacobs well through generous sponsorship. In her own words,
“I would like to thank you for all your warm hearted support. I had a wonderful marathon the weather was perfect and I ran like the wind. The luck of the Irish was truly with me. I ran it in 3hrs 40mins 12 seconds running it 10mins faster than my first marathon and sprinted to the finish line coming 287 out of 1207 marathon runners and 21st women across the line.”
