    FREE Place in Berlin marathon up for grabs!

    I've a friend looking for someone that is prepared to guide a quick blind runner (3hours 15mins pace) in the Berlin Marathon on 29th September this month. Ideally as a guide you would be fit enough to do approx 3 hour marathon yourself to be comfortable at 3hrs 15min pace. It’s a very rewarding thing to do.

    There might be some funding available for costs of transport / accommodation but not certain of how much. Let me know ASAP if you are interested or know someone off boards who might be.

    $hit, I'd like to do this but I'm about 4 weeks short of being in shape I reckon. Shame. It must be a tough gig as well though. Maybe better to start off with a nice slow runner. Best of luck with it.

    Would love to do this but unfortunately I am injured. I was meant to be doing the marathon myself aswell.

    But keeping on point if anyone wants to do the guide pacing for this person I will give them my flight out on teh Saturday morning to Berlin and back on the Sunday night from Dublin. All they would have to pay is the name change.

    Best of luck with it
