World and European 24H Team Announced 2013
The World & European 24H championships will take place in Steenbergen, Netherlands on May 11th/12th. Ireland will be represented by a strong team in the men’s category.
The team will comprise of:
The team is very experienced and some of the members have been in very good form recently. Eoin Keith set an Irish record over 48 hours at the beginning of the year. Dan Doherty has had some very strong performances over 100K including finishing 8th in the recent European Championships. John O’Regan is the reigning 24H national champion and along with Eddie Gallen competed strongly in last year’s World 24H event. A strong team result is a possibility if all goes to plan.
In an event of this nature the support crew are crucial to the team’s success. On this occasion John Collins, John Belton and Kevin Belton will support the team. They will attend to the various requirements over the 24 hour period and ensure that the team competes to their abilities.
