Premmie Marathon Challenge 2021 - Ultramarathon

My Activity Tracking


My target 120 kms

I’m taking part in the Premmie Marathon Challenge

This December marks 5 years since Rua came flying into the world when i was just 30 weeks pregnant and we are so lucky that he has not stopped running since! I've decided to take over from hubbie Mick O'Driscoll and do the marathon this year. Being pregnant I won't be running but i plan on walking 120km during the month of November. This time of year is always an emotional few weeks for us as we build up to Rua's birthday and remember our time in hospital that followed his birth. During his 9 week hospital stay, Rua used equipment donated by the Running for Prems foundation and he was fortunate to be cared for by the legends Dr Tim Schindler and Dr John Smyth, as well as countless other amazing doctors and nurses. We will always remember our stay and by fundraising we try to give others the same opportunities we had in NICU, to grow and grow and grow.
