A radio presenter, who ran non-stop for 24 hours to raise money for Special Olympics Ireland, has exceeded his goal.
98FM's Brian Maher completed the charity runathon around Dublin's Phoenix Park at around 9.00am on Friday.
He had been running 160kms, or nearly four marathons, since 9.00am on Thursday.
The goal was to raise €24,000 in 24 hours and help kick-start or Special Olympics Ireland's annual national day of fundraising.
The challenge, which was made tougher due to wet weather conditions, has seen donations exceed this initial goal.
Speaking just before he crossed that finish line, Brian told Newstalk Breakfast: "I'm as tired as I expected to be - my muscles and joints are all pretty sore at this stage.
"I'll definitely be having a nice, warm bath when I get home.
"It has been brutal from the word go - from 9am yesterday it was lashing rain and during the night it lashed rain.
"Running around Phoenix Park in the pitch black lashing rain, just trying to eat away the hours".
Here is the moment he crossed the finish line:
