Day 10: Donaghadee – Belfast

So after a lovely sleep, I’m up and ready for my run today, really looking forward to getting to Belfast.  I have a day off, not sure how much of the day will be actually taking a break though – as my team have been doing a fantastic job with the press and have some interviews lined up for tomorrow morning.

They have also informed me that some shops in Belfast have came to my rescue for essential items I need (thermal leggings, new runners, hi-vis vest etc.).

We headed off from Donaghdee Lifeboat and Gerry O’Boyle had informed me that he will run with me today, we are going to go via Bangor RNLI station, as my aim is to try and hit as many lifeboats as possible on this epic journey.  Thanks so much to Violet Davidson, Clare & Gemma & babies (running mums), Beverly, Donaghadee Lifeboat & Jeff Meredith (Belfast Times) for braving the cold & giving me a lovely send off.

Myself and Gerry ran very well and arrived in Bangor to a lovely reception and some of the RNLI crew were waiting to welcome us.

Once we were back on the road we made great progress and when we got as far as Holywood we stopped in Dirty Duck AleHouse for a well deserved bowl of soup. We then headed along Airport West to the Titanic Building.

Another 23 miles accomplished today, thanks to everybody on route for making today so enjoyable. Special thanks to Gerry O’Boyle for running with me for the full route today.


My two friends from Arklow (Jean Molloy & Padraig O’Meara) were at the beautiful Jurys Inn Belfast, City Centre, waiting for me,  with my new tracker. Jury’s Inn had agreed to covering my 2 nights in their hotel, happy days :).
