Marathon for the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland

It was a bright and sunny morning on Saturday June 12th when Graham Halton and Sean Brophy set off from the Harbour in Naas on their marathon in aid of The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland. Graham is the son of well-known Naas AC club member Gerry Halton. Club member Ger McKechnie also ran the full 42.2km with Graham and Sean, with Ger acting as pace-maker for much of the route.

Graham and Sean were joined by a collection of Naas AC club members at the start line who ran several km’s in support of this worthy cause. Some of the runners on the day included David, Anne-Marie, Jacinta, Kitty, Alan, Tracey, Tom, Liam, Leah, Vinny, Ruth, Anne-Maria and Cathal .. among others – apologies if we left anyone out.

Other supporters on the day included Alli & kids, Ciara, Layna and Frank who all helped out with water stations, along with Conor, Ben, Kenny, Tara, Paul, Cathy and Yvonne who cheered the guys on at various stages during the day.
