Leitrim runner to run “12 Marathons of Christmas” in aid of North West Stop

Leitrim runner Liam Cox is aiming to take part in a mammoth feat of running 12 Marathons in 12 days in aid of North West Stop.

Starting on the 20th December, Liam will run a marathon a day for 12 days (including Christmas Day) finishing on New Year’s Eve in Carrick on Shannon. Liam will be running across 3-4 different routes across Leitrim during the 12 days. Each day will consist of running 42.2km resulting in over 500km after the 12 days!

However, the festive season very definitely gets a look in on this incredible venture as Liam will be raising some much-needed funds for North West Stop along the way.

“With NW Stop being a charity that offers counselling services, I feel like 2020 is also a perfect time to raise money for this charity as their services are needed now more than ever. I think everyone I know has struggled at times this year.”

North West Stop has been providing a free & confidential counselling service for anyone in need of support for over 15 years in the North West region. Given events of 2020, their services are in as much demand and needed more than ever.

Liam will also be looking for local runners to come out and support his efforts over his Christmas marathon effort so anyone who fancies tackling a marathon over the Christmas or even part of a marathon that would be available as a support runner would be most welcome.
