Dave Goes West.
10 marathons in 10 days along Ireland's West Coast.
Simply put, this is a film about a slightly fat man from Derbyshire attempting to run 10 marathons in 10 days up the west coast of Ireland and going mad in the process.
Dave is a interesting character; on the surface he is slightly tubby and comes across slightly thick but appearances can be deceiving. Dave is an extremely focused, intelligent and hardworking individual who loves pushing his body and mind to the limit.
He has previously cycled 8000 miles around Asia, 10,000 miles around Europe and 2500 miles across Australia to raise money for charity. One day when we were in the pub with Dave, we got to talking about ideas for new adventures. The subject of long distance running was brought up and someone asked Dave if he thought he could run 10 marathons in 10 days. Dave replied ‘I don’t know, shall we find out?’ and from there the idea was born. 6 months later we were in Ireland about to set of on an epic journey up the west coast. We had no idea what we were letting ourselves in for.
