Not everyone knows that 1 in 5 people in Ireland live with arthritis - that it is the single biggest cause of disability in Ireland. You will be running 26 miles, 385 yards. Between 55,000 and 65,000 strides. Not many will appreciate that for someone living with arthritis, any one of 55,000 steps might be a challenge. Any one of those 26 miles, a marathon all by itself.
