Remembrance 10k next month at Finn Valley AC


Remembrance 10k next month at Finn Valley AC

A 10k event to provide an opportunity to those who wish to run/walk in memory of those who have passed away or indeed are presently suffering will be held once again with November 20th being this years date.

November historically and traditionally is a period which we in Ireland and indeed internationally have set aside to remember loved ones that have died.

The thinking is clearly an attempt to remember to do something meaningful to raise funds for a relevant charity of one's choice or alternatively just sign the white boards, a wall of Remembrance in memory of.

Registration is 10 euro each or 30 euro for a family of 4. The venue and race/walk route is from the Finn Valley Centre, Stranorlar; start time 11 am with pre registration by dropping in to Finn Valley Centre in the weeks previous or simply enter on the day.

The course, which is fast and flat, takes in the scenic surrounds of Drumboe Forest returning to Ballybofey via Glenfinn Road to finish on the Valley track.

In addition to the money raised for charity which is an individual/family decision, the registration fee goes towards underage athletics to support same and purchase sportshall equipment.

Additionally a draw will be made on the day to decide a preferred group for a donation from the run. Funds in recent years it was St Vincent De Paul and Caolan Melaugh fun. Come along run, walk, jog. Refreshments of course afterwards.
