Kilcock athlete Paul Robinson will be part of a 4 man team that will attempt to break the 4×1 mile indoor record on St. Patrick’s day.
Robinson will be joined in the AIT Arena Athlone by John Travers, Sean Tobin and Eoin Everard as they look to beat the current record of 16:12.81, set only last month by an American quartet.
Based on their average individual time of 3:57.30 the men have a great chance of creating a piece of history come Friday evening.
The Pinewood native and his team mates are captained by two-time Irish Olympian and world indoor medalist Paul O’Donovan.
So if you can, get down to Athlone at 4pm this Friday and cheer Paul on. Entry is free.
