Marathon Man: My Life, My Father’s Stroke and Running 35 Marathons in 35 Days

MARATHON MAN is an uplifting story of an extraordinary achievement – all the more gripping given that the author was an inexperienced long-distance runner and only 20 when embarking on his mission to run 35 marathons in 35 consecutive days. Alan Corcoran’s response to the shock of his dad’s stroke, was to get active, create positive from negative and raise money for charity.


Alan faced many obstacles along the road – beyond the sheer physical endurance challenge of running 1,500 kilometres around Ireland. He candidly submerges the reader into his world with an endearingly light touch, showing how through sheer perseverance, you can achieve your objectives. Alan’s humour, positivity and pure determination shine through this story. Whatever your challenge, this book will show you that you can succeed.

Available now to order in physical paperback and kindle versions via Amazon.
