Congratulation to Richard Donovan from Galway who finished his Run across the USA at the weekend.
Galway’s ultra runner started his challenge in San Francisco in May, and ran over 3,200 miles in total, averaging about 40 miles a day. Richard finished his remarkable run in Battery Park, New York on Sunday last.
Galwegian Donovan undertook this unbelievable challenge in preparation for a run across Antarctica in which he is planning to raise funds for a fellow runner Alvin Mathews from the U.S. who suffered serious spinal injuries following an accident.
Well done Richard on a fantastic achievement!
