24 Marathons in 24 Days – We need your help to raise €100,000




This June, Shane Finn will set out to run 24 marathons in 24 days. His aim? To raise €100,000 for people in Ireland who live with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus.


Following on from ’12 Marathons, 12 Days’, when Shane raised €36,000 for SBHI in 2014, the unstoppable Kerry man is now back with double the distance – a total of 628.8 miles – to conquer!


How you can help 24 Marathons 24 Days:


• Volunteer to help us collect in towns along the 24 marathon routes


• Volunteer to organise an event in your town to bring people out onto the streets to see Shane off at the start, cheer Shane along the way, or to celebrate with him at the finish line


• ‘What’s your 24? – Choose to do 24 of ANYTHING, e.g. 24 miles in your tractor, shear 24 sheep in 24 minutes, fast for 24 hours etc. and get sponsored to help reach the €100,000 target


• Help us find a fuel partner – covering huge distances will cost a lot in fuel


Supporters can also get involved in the following ways:


• Simply log onto to donate to this epic challenge


• Be a member of ‘Team 24’ – Sign up to take part in a race that puts you to the test and be mentored by Shane who will get you ‘race ready’.


• Explore your contacts and recommend corporate sponsors to support the initiative.


• Tell everyone you know about Shane’s epic challenge to run 24 Marathons in 24 Days to raise €100,000 for everyone in Ireland who liveswith Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus and encourage them to give their support.
