'It was amazing. I did a sprint finish, though I'm not sure how. I couldn't feel my legs at the end'
The backdrops for Mark's run included: California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.
'Week after week the following I have on Twitter had increased. When you are doing so many miles alone in the middle of nowhere it's really encouraging to know there are so many people out there sending messages of support'
The level of support is not surprising. Dedicating the run to his mother, father and brother, Mark has raised a very impressive £74,000 which will be given to his local St. Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation. Both dedication and generosity - a great example of a Man of Action.
'... the amount that has been raised for the two charities is way beyond my wildest dreams...I would have felt I had let people down if I hadn't achieved what I wanted to'
At The Wild Geese Irish Whiskey, we enjoy celebrating people like Mark - those who accomplish great feats which mean a great deal to the world around them. This is an integral part of the story of The Wild Geese.
