The organising committee have this afternoon confirmed that the 10th annual Cara Bundoran Challenge will take place as planned this weekend.
However there are a number of changes which we outline below:
Registration for all events/races will close tomorrow Wednesday 11th March at 12pm. No further registrations will be accepted and you will not be able to register on the day of the race for 5k/10k or 10 mile – registrations can be made online at https://register.primoevents.com/ps/event/CaraBundoranChallenge2020
To avoid a mass gathering situation, we will not be using Magh Ene College. Race numbers can be collected ONLY from Quay West Bar at the Allingham Arms Hotel on Friday 13th from 5pm-9pm and Saturday 14th from 08:00am to 11:00am
Goody bags will be distributed at the finish line at Main Beach AFTER the main 10 mile/10km have finished.
There will be no presentations or refreshments after the event on this occasion. All prizes will be posted to the winners after the event.
We continue to monitor the situation is regards to Covid-19 via the Government and Department of Health and will issue any subsequent updates as the need arises.
