Finally, as you may have already seen, Matt and Michaels charity “Ultra Marathon” fundraiser was an enormous success! They smashed their fundraising target of £1,750 and are the JustGiving page is currently at an astonishing £2,481.29!
Matt and Michael both had a bit to say about their experience with the marathon:
“So all I can say it is the hardest thing I’ve done in my life! The heat was ridiculous - I trained a lot and thought maybe too much before the event but am glad now I did, as to finish 20th was an amazing achievement. The comradery between the other runners got you through the day too, listening to their experiences helped a lot! I’m sure Michael will confirm too but I couldn’t have done it without the support on the day from my fiancé Sam. Sometimes it was just passing by and saying hello whilst she was waiting at the side of the road or those words of encouragement at the pit stops this really helped! Most of the other runners I spoke to were on their own maybe with some support at the finish line only.
I just wanted to thank everyone who made a donation - before Friday when we travelled up to Carlisle, we had just over £1,750. However now we have over £2,300 so again you have all been very kind in your support, this got us both through the day on Saturday!” – Mathew Coulson
“It was a great feeling to cross the line and raise so much for Macmillan. The donation count was still going up as we were finishing which helped to motivate me on the day knowing that people had been so generous. When me and Matt signed up to the Wall almost a year ago, I had planned a rigorous training regime but this didn’t quite go to plan with most of my training being 5-10 mile runs when I could fit them in around work and Gaelic football. With this in mind I knew I was in for a challenge and the weather on the day made that challenge even greater.
Once again a massive thanks to everyone for the support and donations. Macmillan is a charity close to my heart so I am proud to have worn their shirt for 69 miles. Did somebody say Industria Charity Challenge 2018?” - Michael Gilbert
