VIDEO: OH Firefighters Complete Half Marathon in Full Gear for Charity

Dubin (OH) — Firefighters know a thing or two about endurance. They battle flames and intense heat and scale flights of stairs despite thick plumes of smoke. With the help of tanks filled with air they make it through.

But on Sunday, everything that works to help one group of firefighters worked against them.

But this fire run happened outside, and it was an actual run; 13.1 miles to be exact.

The Emerald City Half Marathon in Dublin was the First Due Endurance Race Team’s fourth long distance run.The group is made up of firefighters from Delaware City, Washington and Franklin Townships.

Teams of two run one mile, refresh their air supply and run mile two, and then switch out. For the last mile they finish as a team.

Especially since the money they raise goes to the families of fallen firefighters.
