MAGHERAFELT Harrier Darren Church has completed four marathons in four days in County Donegal.

The Marathons had the added difficulty of taking place on the Innishowen peninsula, so needless to say Darren had a lot of climbing to do.

Darren, however, came through all four days with flying colours averaging under four hours each day, which considering the level of difficulty, was a fantastic achievement.

Darren’s times were as follows: Thursday 3 hours 55 minutes, Friday 3 hours 37 minutes, Saturday 3 hours 43 minutes and, finally, on Sunday which was the most difficult course with a hill at 23 mile which was straight up - 3 hours 47 minutes, a total of 104.8 miles!

All at Magherafelt Harriers would like to congratulate Darren on this magnificent achievement.
