Airtricity Dublin Marathon organisers and the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Oisin Quinn are seeking nominations for the 2013 “Lord Mayor’s Medal”.
The “Lord Mayor’s Medal” was introduced in 2011 as a way for the Lord Mayor’s office to acknowledge the outstanding achievement of everyone who takes part in the Airtricity Dublin Marathon.
The specially commissioned medal is presented to an individual or individuals who are deemed to have either overcome incredible odds to take part in the Airtricity Dublin Marathon or have an unusual marathon story to tell.
The inaugural medal recipient in 2011 was Margaret Mullarney. Margaret has suffered from Parkinson’s for a number of years and was presented with the award due to her efforts in training and raising awareness for the disease. The 2012 recipient was David McCarrie from Dunleer, Co. Louth. David, an avid runner, helped to train 100 members of his local community to run their first marathon in Dublin last year.
Organisers are looking for nominations to be sent by email to email@example.com before Wednesday 16th October 2013.
The presentation of the Lord Mayors Medal will take place before the start of this year’s Airtricity Dublin Marathon on Monday 28th October.
