NINE MARATHONS IN NINE DAYS FROM CORK TO BELFAST
Belfast based restaurateur, Brian McGeown is set to embark on a challenge of epic proportions, running nine marathons in nine days from Cork to Belfast all in aid of three charities close to his heart, The Children’s Heartbeat Trust, The Down ‘s Syndrome Association and mental health charity, Mind Your Mate and Yourself [MYMY]. Brian’s challenge begins on August 12th and will cross the finish line in Belfast on August 20th 2015.
Brian McGeown said, “I will be running 249 miles, through 11 counties from Cork to Belfast, which will be 9.5 marathons in 9 days. The reason for taking on the challenge is that sometimes you feel helpless to people close to you, no matter how sympathetic you are of their situation, by doing a crazy run hopefully I can raise some money and more importantly awareness of what these 3 amazing local charities do on a daily basis. Last year I ran from Belfast to Dublin, so I thought I would try something harder this time round.”
