    Extreme Events Organiser - Richard Donovan

    Extreme Events Organiser - Richard Donovan

    My guest today is Richard Donovan, who will discuss the background of extreme events he organises such as the North Pole Marathon, Antarctic Ice Marathon and World Marathon Challenge. However, given his diversity, Richard is worthy of an entirely separate podcast to share some of his thoughts on the philosophy of ultrarunning, the direction of the sport and his previous roles as a Director of the International Association of Ultrarunners and Head of UltraRunning Ireland. He has organised the IAU Trail World Championships at ultrarunning, obtaining the first global TV audience in the process, and was also a Race Director of the first Commonwealth Championships at both 100km and trail ultra running. He additionally helped to launch the first Wings for Life World Run and was Race Director of the inaugural Irish event. As if that’s not enough, Richard has run across three continents and won several events such as the Himalayan 100 mile Stage Race and Inca Trail Marathon. Richard has shown himself to be a strong advocate for access to sport for people with disability and a big supporter of Irish athletes attempting to qualify for the Olympics, among others. His brother Paul was a two-time Olympian, multiple NCAA track champion and indoor world medalist at 3000m.

    Irish International Trail Runner & Wicklow Round - Paddy O'Leary

    Irish International Trail Runner & Wicklow Round - Paddy O'Leary

    In this episode I catch up with Irish International Ultra Trail Runner & North Face athlete, Paddy O'Leary.  Paddy was home for the screening of his movie Ag Teacht Abhaile / Coming Home which focuses on the Irish Trail Running Community.  The movie uses his successful attempt at a Fastest Known Time #fkt for the Wicklow Round as a backdrop to the story. We talk about Paddy's transition from a competitive Lacrosse player to Ultra Trail Runner and how he only really discovered his true passion for the Irish trails while living in San Francisco. The Wicklow Round is a long-distance hill running  challenge in the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.  The route follows a proscribed 100-kilometre circuit of 26 mountains, which must be completed in a fixed order, that total over 6,000 metres (20,000 ft) of elevation; there is some flexibility on route-choices between peaks.  Rounds completed outside of a cut-off time of 24-hours are not generally recorded.  Irish ultra-runners Joe Lalor and Brian Bell are credited with the creation of the Round. www.imra.ie You can follow Paddy on Instagram @poleary87

    Oman by UTMB - by Eoin Keith

    Oman by UTMB - by Eoin Keith

    Eoin Keith was the winner of the 2019 Oman by UTMB 170Km race.  In this podcast he tells us all about his race and includes some tips and strategies for anyone thinking of taking part in future events. 
    The JBS is an incredibly tough and technical challenge only recommended for extremely experienced adventurers. Participants must be confident in their ability to cover very challenging terrain whilst being completely self-sufficient for a minimum of 10 hours as there are significant distances between the Aid Stations on the Jebel Shams section of the route.
    Athletes taking on this epic challenge will follow the 130KM route up Jebel Al Akhdar, including the vertical climb out of Balad Sayt, before carrying on along the top of the plateau and following the trail around Jebel Shams, where they will climb to an altitude of almost 3,000m.
    Runners arriving at the Aid Station at Col Trail Split within the barrier time, the point at which the Jebel Shams section starts, will be evaluated before being allowed to continue with the JBS. Those runners found not to be in a condition to take on the additional section will be re-directed onto the JBA route and will be reclassified into the JBA race. This also applies to runners arriving after the barrier time.
    With the new qualification criteria for UTMB in Chamonix, runners completing the 130KM or 170KM distances will bypass the lottery and have a guaranteed entry for UTMB 2020.

    Kerry Way Ultra - The Athlete Experience

    Kerry Way Ultra - The Athlete Experience

    In this episode I speak to 3 competitors in the 2019 Kerry Way Ultra.  The Winner, a Finisher and a Did Not Finish (DNF).  This will give you an idea of what it takes to complete this epic event.  We chat about their individual experiences and how their races unfolded from the night before to the day after.
    The Kerry Way traverses one of Ireland's most spectacular mountain ranges with magnificent coastal views, lakes, moorlands and lonely glens with a mixture of tarred roads, lanes, bogs and mountain passes underfoot. It is approximately 200km of roads, lanes, trails, paths and hills, running parallel to The famous Ring of Kerry road on the Iveragh Peninsula and is a route through the Old Red Sandstone mountains of Kerry. The Way touches Irish history (old butter roads, famine graves, abandoned villages), archaeology (hilltop burial chambers, standing stones, ogham writing) and folklore (tales of the Fianna warriors and their escapades).
    Starting and ending in Killarney town, with a maximum race time of 40 hours, this event is open to runners who have completed at least two marathons since in the previous year, one 50 mile event or one 100k event. It is a single stage, self-sufficient ultramarathon, with limited access for race support crews.  The entry criteria is subject to change.  For further information you can visit http://www.kerrywayultra.com/

    Spartathlon 4th Place - Alastair Higgins.

    Spartathlon 4th Place - Alastair Higgins.

    In this episode I'm chatting to Alastair Higgins a Scottish International Ultra Runner based in Dublin.  Alastair finished 4th in the 2019 Spartathlon, an epic race from Athens to Sparta against a stacked field that included some of the World's top Ultra Runners.  We chat about training, racing, nutrition and the mindset required to compete at this level.  We also talk about staying injury free and how the decision making process can be affected by the expectations we perceive from others and also impose on ourselves.  This year Alastair made some changes to his training and is now coached by Conor Holt & Camille Herron.  
    I had a chat with Conor during the 24hr World Championships in Albi this year and found it very interesting and informative.  Conor will be a guest on the podcast in the near future. #spartathlon #ultrarunning
