Ironman challenge

A JOBSTOWN man will be taking on ten half-Ironman challenges in ten days this summer and will be holding a wheelchair accessible fun run in Corkagh Park in Clondalkin this Sunday, all to raise funds for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI) after seeing the impact the condition has had on his friend’s young daughter.

Stephen Martin (36), who runs Marathon Man to Ironman and is the organiser of the Marathon Man to Ironman Family Fun Run, said he realised the importance of raising awareness of spina bifida after his friend Anthony Keogh’s daughter Hannah (3), from Kiltipper in Tallaght, was born with the condition.

The Marathon Man to Ironman Family Fun Run will be held in Corkagh Park on Sunday, June 30 at 10.30am.

Entry is €20 for an adult, €5 for a child, or you can pay for a family entry of two adults and two children for €30, and you can register in advance at www.popupraces.ie or register on the day ahead of the race.
