Solo World Marathon Challenge I – Richard Donovan
Richard Donovan ran 7 consecutive marathon distances in Antarctica, Cape Town, Dubai, London, Toronto, Santiago and Sydney in just five days, 10 hours and eight minutes.
His motivation was to create awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Darfur and to promote the aim of Irish charity Goal to send international peacekeepers to the region.
His latest run was also a personal achievement:
“I’ve run at both poles, and in deserts, mountains, jungle and various other terrain and climatic conditions. I think the Antarctic challenge is the last frontier,” Richard said about his accomplishment.
