70-year-old Irish man walks circumference of the Earth without leaving Limerick

A retired business consultant, who has walked the equivalent of the circumference of the Earth within his neighbourhood, has encouraged others to keep active in the midst of the pandemic. Vinod Bajaj, 70, has walked 40,075 kilometres over the past four years without ever leaving his home city of Limerick. He has extolled the benefits of walking at such a stressful time for people. Mr Bajaj, who was born in India and has lived in Ireland for 43 years, finished his extraordinary feat in September after completing more than 54.6 million steps in 8,322 hours and burning almost 1.5 million calories in under 1,500 days.
