Ultra Man

As previously recorded on this site, James Slowey has an occasional tendency to leave the water and do some land-based endurance work.  As he set off down Kerry way on Friday, he was challenged by various parties to either do a quick swim in the middle of his 50 mile jaunt around the Dingle Ultra-Marathon, or at least wear his Myrtleville hat on the podium.  We had complete confidence he’d be on it 🙂

For various – spurious – health and safety reasons, he couldn’t exit the course for a dip.  However, he met the second part of the challenge and was suitably attired to receive his second place trophy.  50 miles, 6hrs 23mins – including over the Conor Pass.  Give me the sea any day!  Full timings here.
