THREE Tyrone men will join forces with 27 fellow Ireland internationals to take part in AFL Europe’s ‘Race to the MCG’!
Cookstown’s Kevin McSorley, Omagh’s Benny McDevitt and Victoria Bridge’s Kyle Devine will join forces to try to get Ireland from London to the MCG in Melbourne first, ahead of their rivals from all across Europe.
On June 15th, men’s and women’s national teams from around Europe – Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, Wales and the Umpires – will get their quests underway.
Fortunately for the local trio, they don’t actually have to walk the entire distance from London to Australia because this is a virtual race that will be done by combining the participants daily runs and walks recorded on Strava to get them from zero to 16,900 kilometres over the coming weeks.
