Falkland Trail Runner marathon man Daniel Kershaw has added another four 26 milers to his growing tally, but what is more remarkable is they were on four successive days.

Daniel was competing in the Irish Quadrathon where his times for the four races were, Kinnego Marathon 4:18.52, Malin Head Marathon 4:08.32, Mamore Marathon 4:27.55 and 4:23.08.
