North East Inishowen was treated to a spectacle of endurance running on Thursday as over 300 runners got a taste of what's in store for them over the remaining 3 days of the 4 Marathon & Half Marathon Inishowen Quadrathon event.
Weather wasn't in their favour and the talking point of the run was the tough and very misty climb both in and out of Kinnego Bay from the Greencastle side as runners then headed towards the finish in Malin.
Today's run will be a loop from Malin Town via Glengad to Malin Head and back.
