Couple Run Marathon On Wedding Day

A couple from Northern Ireland who are keen runners decided they needed to do something special on their wedding day last week so they ran a marathon together.

The pair, Gillian Cordner and Gary Connolly, tied the knot in Carrickfergus, Co Antrim, on Friday morning but after the ceremony, they chose to forgo the traditional reception and dinner, and go for a 26.2-mile run instead.

Having run almost 400 marathons between them, the newlyweds changed out of their suit and wedding dress into wedding-themed running attire. For the marathon, they were joined by more than 100 other runners, many of whom also wore tuxedo T-shirts, formal dresses and suits.

The event included 5km, 10km, half-marathon and full marathon distances so that as many people as possible could take part.

The couple are now on honeymoon in Tenerife where they said they are now relaxing having ran a marathon on the island on Sunday as well.
