Day 4 - 21st Nov - Nenagh to Mallow
Day 5 - 22nd Nov - Mallow ro Bantry
Day 6 - 23rd Nov - Bantry to Mizen

David Galbraith is embarking upon a gruelling challenge which will see him run a staggering 550km
the length of Ireland. Starting off at Malin Head in Donegal, David will then make his way through
thirteen counties, including at least one in all four provinces before finishing at Mizen Head in Cork.

The run will take place from Monday 18th to Saturday 23rd November 2019 and David is hoping to raise €10,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.

The Irish Cancer Society is a charity dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem and
improving the lives of those who have the disease.

David has previously completed a long-distance event before, in 2014 having completed a coast to
coast challenge from Galway to Dublin. This will be a definite step up as it will be over double the
distance in the same time period to complete the challenge.

David has a strong background in running and was a member of Dunboyne AC in Co. Meath for over
eight years. For his challenge, David has been training six days a week clocking up weekly mileage in excess of 100miles per week. His marathon experience is significant having run 23 marathons to

During his top 2 bottom challenge, David is encouraging people along the route to join him for
different sections and distances. He already has the support of several running clubs, businesses and
colleges along the route. David is also contacting Irish celebrities for promotional opportunities and
is confident he’ll secure at least one to run with him on one of the days.
