Mac with his 35th marathon medal

Running a marathon is one of the most challenging sporting events a person can compete in. For 73 year old Dr Mac Speake, 2015 marked his 35th London marathon meaning he has ran in every marathon since the marathons conception in 1981. This is a massive achievement and one that is only held by 13 other runners. 

 

Branded and Sportsafe wanted to support Mac’s marathon by branding a running vest for the race with “Mac Ever Present” as seen in the picture!

We also produced a branded running top to go with the vest for training and warm-up. We would like to congratulate Mac on his 35th marathon success and we look forward to supporting his marathon next year. To see the full story from the day check out the links below from the local papers.
