Liam McHugh - Cystic Fibrosis Trust

Liam is the 2nd of our #MarathonHeroes - people doing extraordinary things to raise money for great causes. Here, he tells us his reasons for running the London Marathon...

"The charity that I run for is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. This charity is very close to my heart as our only child Rachel was born with this condition 26 years ago.

When Rachel was born life expectancy was 16 years of age. Several years and marathons later and I'm approaching the £200,000.00 mark for fundraising for the CF Trust Rachel is doing great. Life expectancy has soared to 42 years old and rising due to research and fundraising. Rachel has a degree, Masters and is in her final year of completing a PhD all in Psychology. We are so proud of her."

Anti Blister socks

These are really good, comfortable socks for running with. They have relieved some of the foot numbness that I get whilst running, so for that alone, a great big thumbs up! However, if I wear them with my cycling shoes, they make the shoes too tight on my feet and cause some discomfort, not intolerable, but enough to make me not want to wear them for cycling.

So, great for running, not so good for cycling.

Perfect for UAE summer

Zero chafing on short and long runs in the stifling heat of a UAE summer.

Runderwear TriSuit

I rode 57km in mid summer with my new Runderwear Trisuit and found it reasonable comfortable and supportive. The seat pad is a little thinner than my other trisuit and makes for less comfort on the bike, but I suppose it would make for a more comfortable swim and run during competition. The material is more compressive than the usual Runderwear gear but is not restrictive. Reasonably happy with my purchase.

An amazing product, perfect for long runs in the hot summer of the UAE. Zero chafing, 100% comfort!

Great Trail Socks

I struggle to find good trail socks. I've worn these socks a few times on the trails now, they're comfortable and are good for movement on the downhills. Because of the double layer, they are a bit hot to wear in the summer heat.
