Billy McMahon, a dairy farmer from Ramelton, Co. Donegal is gearing up to join Team Donegal Oil to take part in their 8 person team for the 2017 Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra.
Commenting on why he was delighted & inspired to join Team Donegal Oil’s challenge Billy said, “Having hit my half-century, I joined “Ray Men on the Move” in December 2015 to try to get a bit fitter. After 4 months I was able to run a 5K, and then with a lot of encouragement from one very determined trainer I took part in an adventure race as part of a team, with even more encouragement I completed the next one as a solo.”
“Just this year I started cycling more, but he would never have thought in a million years of taking part in something like the Donegal Atlantic Way Ultra Race!”
“However, Team Donegal Oil’s spirit of #haveago, has inspired me to be part of this encouraging team. I am thankful for the opportunity and looking forward to the challenge, craic and the finish line with a fantastic team of cycling novices!”
