Event description

Description

Kerry entrepreneur, Shane Finn took on the epic and gruelling charity challenge of running 24 marathons in 24 consecutive days across Ireland between June and July 2017, raising over €140,000 for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI).

Film-maker Ben Condell followed ultra-athlete Shane on every kilometre of the 1012 kilometre route of the 24 marathons from Donegal to Dingle as Shane pushed his body to its extremes. 'Pushing Limits’ is the documentary of the 24 Marathons, 24 Days Challenge which Ben captured on film.

The film tracks Shane from his start in Donegal Town, on 22nd June 2017, running a full marathon a day for 24 days, passing through 24 of the 26 counties in the Republic before making it back home to Dingle, Co. Kerry to the finish on 15th July 2017.

‘Pushing Limits’ shows an insight into Shane’s motivation for what was an incredibly difficult challenge: his 35-year-old cousin, Mary Evans. Mary lives in Celbridge, Co. Kildare, and like thousands of other people in Ireland has spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

The film also shares insights from the people who know Shane best – his family – as well we showing the scale of the challenge which would not have been possible without Shane’s amazing support team, the many sponsors and members of the public who supported the event.

Shane was a shortlisted Best Fundraiser of the Year finalist in the recent inaugural National Fundraising Awards.

The legacy of his physical and mental endeavour by pushing his limits will benefit hundreds of people.

'Pushing Limits' had its American premiere in San Francisco on 12th April; following a premiere in Dingle in Shane's native county of Kerry on Friday, 27th April.

This screening in the Carlton Hotel in Blanchardstown is the Dublin premiere of 'Pushing Limits'.
