Armagh man Stevie McGeown has embarked on an incredible feat of completing 100 marathons in 100 days.

Stevie is taking up the challenge alongside Dubliner Larry Maguire, in aid of The Laura Maguire Foundation, which promotes emotional, psychological & physical health in children.

The challenge began on Friday in Dublin’s Phoenix Park and will continue up until the end of August.

From Sunday to Friday each week the pair will be running the same course in the Phoenix Park Dublin. On Saturday each week they will travel to a different city or town and stage one of their weekly managed marathon events in that location.
