I’ll run 32 marathons in 32 counties …in 16 days
As new year resolutions go, running one marathon might seem like a hefty task but a Cork city fireman is planning to run 32 marathons, in 32 counties in just 16 days for charity.
Alex O’Shea, a well-known ultramarathon runner and member of Cork City Fire Brigade’s Blue Watch, is currently putting a number of the logistics in place.
The Ballineen man previously broke the world record for running a marathon while in full firefighter attire – steel-toed boots, overalls and helmet included – in three hours and 41 minutes in 2014, beating the previous record by almost an hour.
