Galway man Richard Donovan is something of a superstar in the gruelling sport of ultra running. He has made truly epic runs across many of the world’s most extreme climates including the Sahara Desert, Mount Everest, the Inca Trail, and the Amazon jungle. In 2002 he became the first runner in the world to run a marathon at both the North and South poles and in 2009 he was the first athlete to run seven consecutive marathons on seven continents in less than seven days.
