West Kerry man halfway through 36-day charity trek across the US

A West Kerry man is halfway through a 36-day charity trek across the US.

Shane Finn, an endurance athlete from Annascaul, left San Francisco last month to run and cycle his way to Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

He is running 60km per day for three consecutive days, followed by three days of cycling 270km, for over five weeks.

Two years ago, the 26-year-old completed 24 marathons in 24 days to raise money for those with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalous.
