In his first year at international running in 2011, Dan amazingly finished in the top 20 in the world at both 100km and trail running. He made his debut for Ireland at the Anglo Celtic Plate 100km in March 2011 and ran an excellent time of 7:19:29. He also won multiple trail races in the UK and finished 17th at the Trail World Championships in Connemara on 9th July 2011. In doing so, he led the Irish team to 7th position. Dan subsequently finished 14th at the 2011 World 100km Championships in the Netherlands on 10th September 2011, running a PB of 7:08:07 hrs in the process and leading the Irish team to 5th position in Europe and 7th in the world. In 2012, he captained the Irish team and once again led them home with a new PB of 7:07:26 hrs to finish 6th team at the 100km World Championships.
