In the second episode of our new Tri Talking Sport podcast, we chat with Ray O'Connor from Galway who is an avid marathoner and ultra distance runner. He has completed 169 marathons in the last 18 years and has already this year completed two 100 mile races and is training to take on the Connemara 100 in August as his third 100 mile race in 2019.
We chat with Ray about his passion for running, his dual life as both a runner and a race director of numerous events including; The Forest Marathon, Run Galway Bay, Connemara 100 Mile and where the idea came from for the Connemara International Marathon, how RunIreland.com was born and how Marathon Club Ireland was founded.
Ray imparts some of his running wisdom gained over his many years and tells us where and how he finds joy in running.
