Corkman Paul Tieney completes all 214 peaks in the Lake District in record time



Former Cork hurler Paul Tierney has just set a new record for completing all of the Wainwright's 214 Lake District peaks.

In total, he ran an incredible 318 miles (511 km) ascending a total of 36,000m (118,000ft) in a record time of six days and six hours. This is the equivalent of four ascents of Everest!




The previous record of six days and 13 hours was set in 2014 by Steve Birkinshaw.

Paul also raised £18,000 for a mental health charity in the process.
