Next up - 11 days across Ireland

In September, Claire and I will be running the M2M Ultra - the length of Ireland (344.5 miles) divided into eleven daily stages averaging 32 miles each. The race starts at Malin Head in the North, and finishes at Mizen head in the Republic. Up to 16 of us will be living on a "luxury rock-and-roll sleeper bus with our own personal chef". As ultrarunning and luxury have been rarely known to appear in the same sentence, it should be interesting!

Runners from the Isle of Man, England, South Africa, Northern Ireland, Canada - and now us - are entered. Kudos to race organizers Rory and Jen for taking on what sounds like a great adventure.
