ULTRA runner Ed McGroarty of Lifford Strabane AC is the new Irish 24 hour Champion.
The Raphoe man won the Belfast 24-Hour International in Victoria Park at the weekend.
Not only that, but he smashed the Irish record when he clocked up a massive total of 256.57Km / 159.42 Miles in 24 hours.
McGroarty ran 155 laps non-stop, which was the equivalent of over 6 marathons.
McGroarty has taken part in the gruelling event previously and more recently in July he broke the world record for running from Mizen Head to Malin Head. The run took him three days, two hours and 53 minutes – breaking the previous record of 3:3:47, set by Eoin Keith in May 2017.
