Gavin Byrne clocks 14:22!

Following a record-breaking weekend, for the DRR to close off July, Gavin Byrne, the current Wicklow Round record holder, decided at the last minute to see how he would fair across the 39 peaks of the Rankin Round.

Starting off at 5 am on Saturday 1st August with a great support crew, Gavin stormed around the course in the second-fastest time we have seen for the round in 14 hours 22 minutes, just 1 minute under the pre-July course record set by Konrad Rawlik (Carnethy). No doubt with the knowledge gained, Gavin could come back and challenge for Steven Shields 13:37 course record in 2021!
