MKO (now EisnerAmper Ireland) was well represented at the Rome City Marathon with Alanna O’Doherty, Cormac Doyle, Karl Purcell and Emanuela Zamboni all successfully completing the challenging course!
It was a first time running a marathon for 3 of the team (Emanuela is a native Italian and a veteran of 3 previous marathons which everyone agreed gave her a distinct competitive advantage!). All of the team finished in relatively full health and in great times! Cormac, the group’s elder statesman, led them home with Emanuela, Karl and Alanna finishing joint second. It was a great achievement for all the team given the challenging conditions on the day, old age (Cormac), injuries picked up in training (Alanna) and a lack of training or a decent pair of runners (Karl)!
More importantly, the team raised over €1,600 for their two chosen charities – Pieta House andSonas Housing – and they would like to thank everyone for their generous donations.
Next on the agenda for the MKO (now EisnerAmper Ireland) elite athletics department is a crack at a sub 4 hour run in the Dublin City Marathon in October, and they are opening membership for any new participants!Latest News
