The Support Crew

the foundations of every good team

Team Carrie is a team of runners that have trained for and part taken in the SSE Airtricity Marathon over the last 10 year period. As vital part of the team is support crew in the background who are always there on hand to provide a much needed cup of tea after training under the guidance of Ian Pat Carroll who has been a member of TC from the outset.

Towards the end of the 22 weeks of training the long training runs and see TC heading for the roads of Gaulstown, Grangebellew and Clogherhead and Saturday on Sunday mornings. The unwritten rule is that the team support each other on both days providing much needed water for re hydration, gels and supplies.

In recent times the food stop at Port Beach has seen a high level of competition between the TC member at their supply stop and seen the introduction of “Stall of the season” award.  All a bit of banter and good natured fun.
