art-oneill-ultraGearoid Towey, formerly of the Irish Olympic Rowing team and 2 times world rowing champion is putting on a 55km  ultra challenge in Ireland.

Gearoid says, ” I am organising an ultra run, night event based around the historic Art O Neill walk. The route and details are on www.artoneillchallenge.com

” From the website, you will see it is mainly a hiking event but i am adding the ultra race as something extra which i hope will become an annual race. It should be a really good night and for a good cause.

All the details are on that website.

Hope to see you there! Gearoid Towey.
