    Animal lover plans 50-mile marathon in bare trotters
    By Meath Chronicle


    A NAVAN animal lover is preparing to run a 50-mile marathon barefoot to build a new home for two pigs in a local sanctuary.

    During lockdown earlier this year Ian Lawton (47) undertook an ultra marathon distance of 41 miles around loops of his neighbourhood deciding to go the “extra mile” to raise money for the “superhero doctors and nurses who fought to save his son” who tragically passed away when he was just one-day old.

    The brave dad raised over €3,000 and provided care packages for every special baby care unit in Ireland.

    Just two years ago Ian at 25 stone was morbidly obese, pre diabetic, in danger of having a stoke and struggling to come to terms with the loss of his son Hank who was born prematurely in 2011.

    The dad of two who lost an incredible eleven stone in nine months says that “running saved his life.” To continue reading, please visit: https://www.meathchronicle.ie/2020/09/18/animal-lover-plans-50-mile-marathon-in-bare-trotters/
