Running the Length of the Royal Canal

My Royal Canal Run – 21st June 2019

After 35 weeks of planning and training the time had come to take on my personal challenge of running the entire distance of the Royal Canal from the Sea Lock at the River Liffey in Dublin to the 46th Lock at Richmond Harbour in Cloondara in Co. Longford. A distance of just over 90 miles.

Over the previous several months I had carried out many recce runs along the banks, covering all the parts of the canal in sections so I knew the lay of the land and good places where it would be possible for my support crew to meet me.
