It’s all systems go and the event regarded as amongst the most scenic in Ireland has a 1pm start on this occasion.
Added is a 7 mile option with the same start point in the village and finish point on the Beach as normally but the 7 mile option walk /jog /run simply requires a diversion along the route in the Isle Of Doagh.
Local event directors Des Kemmy, Michael Mc Laughlin and Susan Mc Gonagle have targetted 1000 participants and as local councillor Martin Mc Dermott, present at the launch, underlined ‘occassions and events such as this are a very positive addition to the opportunities available to tourists and locals alike and highlight the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way and more particularly the beauty of this immediate area’.
Throw in TWO world class golf courses and the Famine village and you immediately have a family package!
It dosent end there so a welcome awaits for what is sure to be a great Easter weekend in the village of Ballyliffin in Inishowen.
Present also to endorse the Challenge was Irish Athletics Olympic Team Leader Patsy Mc Gonagle.
The children’s races on the Beach which proved such good fun previously will be repeated and entry is free
It’s a family day out in every respect.
