A reception has been held in Cloonavin for marathon enthusiast Eugene Winters.

The 60-year-old, from Portstewart, completed his first marathon in Belfast five years ago.

Since then, he has completed 300 official marathons in 300 weeks.

The remarkable runner has taken part in all the ‘Marathon Majors’ including London, Boston, New York, Chicago and Tokyo. He has also been a regular ‘back to back’, ‘treble’ and ‘quad’ runner, running marathons two, three and four days in a row.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Councillor Joan Baird, OBE, said: “Eugene has achieved so much since he first took up marathon running. His passion and enthusiasm is truly remarkable and he hopes his success can inspire others to get active, no matter what age they are.

“I would like to commend Eugene for his fundraising efforts, as he has raised vital funds for many worthwhile charities. I wish him all the best in his next marathon challenge.”
