Met The Marathon Man At Brisbane Marathon

by admin on August 8, 2011

I ran the 42.2 km Brisbane Marathon yesterday with my brother Harry and our mate Harry (common name!).

At the end I had a chat with the legendary Marathon Man – Trent Morrow – who has run a staggering 40+ marathons in the last 40 months – including the 256km Marathon des Sables through the Sahara Desert in 2008 and the 90km Comrades Marathon in South Africa in 2010.

Jack Sinclair and Marathon Man

Me with the amazing Marathon Man!

Next up for Marathon Man is the 2011 Sahara Race – 250kms in 7 days – it’s one of the leading 4 Deserts racingtheplanet ultra-marathon adventure series.

And he runs for 2 reasons:

  • to raise money for Facing Africa
  • to encourage other people to run a marathon (Marathon Man says 99% of people could easily run a marathon)

So if you ever see Marathon Man at a running event, be sure to say “Hi” – he’s running for others and that’s a great, great thing.

Cheers

Jack
