The organisers of endurance event The Race have revealed that the winner of the gruelling 24-hour trek was so far ahead that he could have won in an even faster time.

The Race winner Mariusz Olejniczak, who has lived in Ireland for 10 years and owns a gym in Kildare, crossed the finish line in a record time of 15 hours, one minute, and 45 seconds.

It was the third staging of the gruelling event, which recorded Kildare man Rob McDonald in second place and Donegal man Martin Lynch, from Ramelton, finishing in third on 15 hours and 41 minutes.

The full course involves road and mountain running, cycling, and kayaking.

Co-organiser Sean McCrudden said Mariusz is phenomenal and was super relaxed throughout The Race and could have went faster if he wanted.
