Our Annual Trip to Tipp takes place on Sunday 6th October 2019 now in its 25th Year – it is a well-established fixture in Ireland’s sporting calendar. The Trip to Tipp has an event suitable to pretty much anyone who is looking to get active while supporting a local event in aid of the NCBI – Working for People with Sight Loss and in memory of Lorraine Shanahan. It starts and finishes at the Ursuline Sports  Complex, Smith O’ Brien street Thurles. On offer there is a 120 km Cycle Route, 60 km Cycle Route and a 10 km Cycle route,  along with a 10 km timed Run and a 10 km Walk.

This year we will be joined on the 10km run by Visually impaired runner Sinead Kane. Sinead is a double Guinness World Record Holder. In February 2018 she broke the Guinness World Record for furthest distance for a female on a treadmill in 12 hours. Sinead is also the holder of a Guinness World Record for being the first blind person to complete a Marathon on each of the seven Continents, a feat which she completed in less than 7 days in January 2017.  She is also the first Irish female to do the world marathon challenge. Sinead and her guide runner [John] completed their first Marathon of this challenge at Union Glacier, Antarctica followed by running a Marathon in Punta Arenas (South America), Miami (North America), Madrid (Europe), Marrakech (Africa), Dubai (Asia) and finally Sydney (Oceania).
