IRISH WEST-EAST-WEST WORLD RECORD
From the most westerly point in Ireland, Slea Head, Co. Kerry, to the most easterly point, Wicklow Lighthouse, Co. Wicklow, and back again.
The race in Joe's words
We had attempted to come up with an innovative race in late summer that would meet COVID restrictions, however it fell through at the last minute so once again we were challenged to find a way to reach further. Maybe this was the year to hold all records in all directions on the island of Ireland?
I did the East-West record in 2019 and suspected there was a better route. I also wanted to lay down a record for both directions. Yes, it was looking like this was a year where reaching further meant holding all records in all directions.
Having ended in the magnificent and magical Slea Head, Co. Kerry last year I thought it would be a more favorable place to start and finish. I was right.
