Run the Dublin Marathon with Team Barretstown and James Casserly

James Casserly, age 11, who has cerebral palsy and juvenile arthritis, was the first person last year to ever compete in the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon in a wheelchair alongside his coach, Mark Lacey.  Will you cross the finish line with James this year, as part of Team Barretstown, as he takes on this phenomenal challenge once again?

Put Magic in your Miles and take on the 26 miles this October for Barretstown – you’ll make a difference in the lives of children, like James, with serious illness and their families.
