Richard Donovan - Ireland

   Richard is a resident of Galway, a town of some 70,000 people
   situated on the west coast of Ireland.  Richard became the first member of

   the North Pole Grand Slam Club on December 14th. He achieved
   this distinction in one year having run a distance of a marathon or
   longer on all seven continents and at the North Pole in 2002.

   Among his outright successes last year, Richard won the first ever
   South Pole Marathon (Antarctica), the Inca Trail Marathon (South

   America), and the Everest Challenge Marathon and Himalayan
   100-Mile Stage Race (Asia). In a solo run on April 5th, he also
   became the first person in history to run a marathon at the North
   Pole. Richard is obviously an experienced Polar marathoner, but
   his principal goals are now in the ultra running area of the sport
   over distances of 100k and 100 miles.
