Cara Run seeks partners
Charity groups and community groups local to the Bundoran area are invited to apply to become beneficiaries of the 2019 Cara Bundoran Challenge, which will take place from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March 2019.
The challenge, which is now in its 9th year, attracts participants from all over the country and further afield as it is one of the first major running events of the calendar year. A significant donation is made to the partners each year from funds raised through entry fees and sponsorship. Local charity and community groups are invited to make submissions as to why they should be one of this year’s beneficiaries.
Cara Pharmacy joint director and main sponsor of the event, Canice Nicholas is encouraging plenty of submissions “each year we like to give back to the local community and many local groups have benefited over the past number of years. All applications will be considered and the lucky recipients will be notified early in the new year. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. For participants, the race will once again be capped at 2,500 entrants so we would encourage anyone thinking about doing the challenge in 2019 to get registering – registration is open now on our website www.carabundoranrun.com with discounted entry rates for those registering before Monday December 31st. All registration will once again be done online with no registration on the day.”
A spectacular route of country roads and wild Atlantic scenery awaits runners visiting the seaside town for the 9th annual challenge, the main event of which takes place on the Saturday morning with the 10k and 10 mile runs.
Bundoran Tourism Officer Shane Smyth added ‘we’re so happy to see the Cara Bundoran Run as it’s very much a staple of the annual event calendar and we look forward to welcoming all of the participants again in March. We remind runners over the winter months who are out practicing the route to make sure that they can be seen by wearing high visibility vests or other items of clothing.’
