Congratulations and very well done to Year 2 BMBS student Cathal Freeman, who successfully completed a marathon length run on a patch of grass near his UL student accommodation on Sunday 5th April 2020.

Taking approximately seven and a half hours, Cathal completed 1,400 circuits around a 30-metre course whilst soloing a sliothar.

Cathal is raising money for the Irish Cancer Society and the HSE Staff for PPE during this crisis. An initial fundraising target of €20,000 was more than doubled with a current total of over €55,000 raised.

The sponsorship appeal remains open at his go fund link https://ie.gofundme.com/f/marathon-while-soloing-a-sliothar
