Kenny Ager of Starcom Sports Revolution and son of the Meath’s own Chrissie Ager (who leads ‘Backstage’ our Creative and Dramatic Arts workshop), pounded the pavements of London on Sunday 13 July, along with around 31,000 other runners aiming to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity out of over six hundred participating in the event.
Kenny, sporting a very fetching ‘Meath Extreme’ T-shirt and wristband, ran solo in aid of the Meath Epilepsy Trust, coming home in just under the hour receiving a well-earned medal, a bottle of water … and a banana!
Talking afterwards, he said, “After three and a half years of calling the Bangkok skyline ‘home’, I really enjoyed seeing some more familiar iconic London landmarks and feeling that wonderful community spirit. I did ‘hit the wall’ at one point, but when a runner passed me with the message “For Mum” on her back, I remembered with great clarity that mine was amongst the huge crowd of spectators (albeit wearing a bright red toadstool fancy dress hat), and I knew full well that I would never hear the end of it if I didn’t finish!”
Despite a tight hamstring, Kenny put a sprint on to the finish. “It was a great event – do please keep the donations coming in. I would like to raise as much as I can for this wonderful cause.”
