Day 15: Ballycastle to Portrush

Last night I heard from my support team that David McGaffin was doing a fantastic job getting people lined up to run with me today. I went to bed happy knowing that I would have more company, as it makes each run more enjoyable.

I’m not sure what I was thinking when I woke up (probably over eager to get started), but I set off running from the B&B and completely forgot about meeting the crew at the harbour. Thank god there athletics and caught up with me, as without David, Ballycastle Runners AC & Springwell Running Club, I would have been lost.

Today some of the views were amazing, but definitely seeing the Giants Causeway from a different angle was spectacular.

The kind people at the Sheep Island View Hostel insisted that we stop for a little break and the hospitality was amazing.

We also stopped at the Bayview HotelNI and they were also very generous with their hospitality.


Once again my support team have done an amazing job and getting a medical check once I arrived at my destination had to be done. Fit body, Fit mind and all of that 🙂

Judy Nelson LPO at Lifeboat Station brought me to the appointment and looked after me so well. Judy also organised my accommodation tonight, look at these beautiful photos of my gorgeous apartment. Thanks again to the Antrim house for looking after me so well. Had a lovely dinner a the Ramore Wine Bar, thanks George McAlpin and all the staff.

Today was another amazing day and to be honest I cannot believe how good I feel, so I departed at 9am from Ballycastle and arrived at Portrush Lifeboat Station at 3.02pm. Miles today 20.77 or 33.42kms, Total miles 344.70 or 554.74kms.


Night all x
