|Dave Brady after reaching 300 marathons in 2013|
In 2012, Dave Brady ran 46 marathons that year to set a new Irish record. In 2013, Brian Ankers ran 82 marathons to set a new record. Now, Dave Brady has pushed the bar even higher with 104 marathons in one year.
Dave Brady completed his first marathon in 1986 and it took him 21 years to do the first 100. With the creation of so many new marathons, it took just 6 years to do the next 200. He passed the 300 mark in August of 2013. Add in the balance of 2013 and the 104 of 2014 and he must be up around the 430 mark at this stage.
104 is an incredible figure not only from the physical effort of doing them but also the logistics is getting to each one.
