Inspired by Ann McGeeney

Ann lived life to the full. She was devoted to her family, her career and her sports interests. In her ‘Peace and Reconciliation’ work, she was passionate about bringing local communities together, particularly in the border areas where this Sportive is taking place.

She loved adventurous sports such as, mountaineering, rock climbing, canoeing, running, swimming and triathlons. During her final years she enjoyed biking, particularly mountain-biking. Ann was very enthusiastic, promoting sport particularly to women and believed in the physical and mental benefits of exercise. She always relished a challenge.
