Turtles & Hares



Not all heroes wear capes and in David Carrie’s case, his hero’s clothing of choice is a pair of running shorts. Postman by day and Running Guru by night, David Carrie is a former Irish international athlete who has turned the small country town in which he lives into the undisputed Marathon Capital of Ireland, with a population of only 1,800 and yet almost 1,000 Dublin Marathon finishers.
