Ben McGilloway’s 250Km Challenge

I have been decidedly less than stellar when it comes to updating the blog, especially since finishing the last marathon in Leixlip. But I’d like to let you guys know about a friend of mine, Ben McGilloway, who is embarking on a loony running mission on his own. By next November, he plans to clock up 250 sanctioned racing kilometers to raise money for charities that help those affected by still births or neonatal deaths – namely the Sophie-Ellen Foundation, the Little Life Time Foundation and Feileacain. Ben is already seven races (or 60 kilometers) into his challenge with many more still to come.

If you’d like to support Ben on his journey, the 250KM Challenge for the Sophie-Ellen Foundation is now on Facebook, Twitter, and you can sponsor him by going to
