Limerick to Dublin
This is the exact same course Brian did last year, except instead of doing it in five days, he’s doing it in one! The markers show how he broke the journey last year so you can really appreciate the difficulty of this year’s challenge.
This year Brian and Mile will be running from Limerick to Dublin 126 miles in 1 Day! Here is their route starting in Limerick on Thursday April 26th 2012. The boys will be running from Limerick to Dublin along the R445 (Old Dublin Road).
THURSDAY 26th April 2012 – 7AM
LIMERICK: On Thursday 26th April, Mike and Brian will start their run from Debenhams, O Connell Street in Limerick City at 7am. They will leave O Connell St and run out the Dublin Road (R445) to Castletroy passing the Parkway Roundabout, Groody Roundabout, Kilmurrey Roundabout, and Annacotty Roundabout. They’ll stay on the R445 Old Dublin Road to Daly’s Cross.
TIPPERARY: Staying on the R445 Old Dublin Road, the boys will be running through Birdhill, Nenagh, and Toomevara.
OFFALY: The R445 then crosses over the border into Offaly where they’ll run past Moneygall and Dunkerrin.
TIPPERARY: They will re-enter Tipperary and run through Roscrea town and over the border to Laois
LAOIS: On the R445 they will run past Borris in Ossory, Castletown, Mountrath, Portlaoise, New Inn, Ballybrittas,
KILDARE: Continuing on the R445, the boys will run through Monastervin, Kildare town, The Curragh, Newbridge and Naas. Moving onto the R403, the boys will run from Naas to Clane, Cellbridge and onto Dublin.
FRIDAY 27TH April 2012 10AM – 2PM
DUBLIN: The boys will cross over the Dublin border and into Lucan village, along the R109 Lower Road. They will head to Dublin city centre via the Strawberry Beds past The Angler’s Rest, Chapelizod Rd, Knockmaroon Hill, Conyngham Rd, and Parkgate St and onto the North Quays over Grattan Bridge to Parliament St onto Patrick St, Kevin St, Cuffe St, Stephens Green and finally onto the finish line at the top of Grafton St.
We are predicting that Mike and Brian running non-stop from Limerick to Dublin will take them approximately 30 hours to complete, all going well!
