Before he travelled, Alex posted on Facebook ""As I head to Wales for a longer race I can't help thinking of Ballycotton 10 and what would have been my 10th time running it. But as an ultra runner I have opted to focus on a welsh national competition over longer a distance. Not being Welsh I will compete in the open race."

Alex's performance was approx. 6:45/mile for every mile. This equates with a 67:30 Ballycotton 10....and then continuing to repeat this another three times = four Ballycotton 10's back-to-back
