This month we shine our spotlight to Marathon Runner Niall O’Rourke who truly lives up to his Medal Displays motto - Fear No Distance. His display caught our attention all thanks to Nadine, Niall’s girlfriend, who has brilliantly put together and shared a photo of the display, making it one of the best we’ve seen.
Niall tells us how his running journey began a few years back, over to you Niall.
"After many years of zero exercise I decided to change things up with my life so I signed up for a marathon.
Along that journey I raised a lot of money for cancer research back home in Ireland.
Turns out that 1 marathon weren’t enough so I found myself doing 5 full marathons and I cannot keep track of how many half marathons I completed in the last 8+ years.
After old age kicked in, it was time to find a new challenge to keep myself going, so I carried on to long distance open water swimming then.
After years of having finisher medals thrown in a top drawer my girlfriend discovered medal displays and now I have the big ones proudly displayed for everyone to see."
From all of us at Medal Displays, we thank Niall and wish him all the best for his future goals. Keep doing yourself proud!
Our mission is to help celebrate wins and inspire many more, by hanging medals properly.
