THE organisers of this year’s Donegal Coastal Cancer Challenge have this week reported a growing interest in the event.
The Coastal Cancer Challenge will be raising funds for The Good and New Cancer Charity Bus (this bus takes patients to and from various hospitals in the West and North West).
It takes place next Saturday week (July 19). Starting in Dunfanaghy town, this race is the ultimate in adventure racing. This course will push participants to the limit, with a mix of running, cycling and mountain climbing.
“The race takes you on a stunningly beautiful loop around Muckish Mountain, Ards Forest Park, Marblehill Beach and the surrounding countryside,” Mr Nigel Drain of Motiv8 Fitness, one of the organisers said this week.
“The course has been improved from last year. There will be team and individual events and this year there are two course options The Ultimate Challenge and the Sprint Challenge,” he added.
Organisers have stressed the adventure can be done by a team of three or individuals.
“We’re hoping the sporting public in Donegal will come out and support the event. We need to get around 200 people to the line to make the event feasible,” Mr Drain said.
“Following on from the huge success of Gaelforce North, we’re hoping people will come out again and support this event,” he added.
