On Sunday April 10th Ennerdale Craft Brewery will launch a non-profit beer to support local legend Gary McKee in his latest challenge to run a mind boggling 365 marathons in 365 consecutive days!
Gary’s no stranger to marathon challenges, in fact in 2021 he made the national headlines as he ran an incredible 110 marathons in 110 days.
Gary was inspired to fundraise after his father was diagnosed with cancer in 1997. He died from an unrelated illness in 2003, and since then Gary has dedicated most of his time to fundraising for both McMillan Cancer Support and Hospice at Home West Cumbria.
We at Ennerdale Craft have been in awe of Gary’s efforts for several years now, and have lent our support for each of his marathon challenges by doing what we do best, Brewing fantastic beer, and dedicating the profits of that beer to Gary’s chosen charities, and this year is no exception.
The new incarnation of Marathon Man 365 will be available in both Cask and Bottles from Sunday April 10th, when we will launch the beer at around 10.00am to a fanfare as Gary enters the Brewery Yard on the day of his 100th Marathon.
Anyone is welcome to attend and show their support for Gary’s Herculean efforts on the day. We are located at Chapel Row, Rowrah, Frizington, Cumbria CA26 3XS.
