Get ready for Fun Run Friday 30.05.23

THE annual Spraoi agus Spórt Fun Run takes place this Friday 2nd June in Carndonagh, starting at 7:30pm. Registration opens at 6pm, so be sure to get there in plenty of time.

Spraoi agus Sport chief executive, Helen Nolan said: “The 5K run/walk kicks off at Ard Colgan in Carndonagh going via Foden, Moville Road and Pound Street., before finishing in The Diamond. The run/walk is to celebrate the end of our Couch to 5k programme and to raise funds for our disability programmes and activities.”

Registration is at the Spraoi agus Spórt office in Unit 6 in the Supervalu complex. It costs just €20 per family to take part with individual rates of €10 for an adult and €5 for a child.

“We’ll be giving away lots of prizes on the night,” says Helen. We have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for men, women and children.”

Helen says last year over 100 people took part: “What people liked most about the race was the fun and comradery. We’ll be celebrating the finish of the run with refreshments in Unit 6 afterwards.”

“But it will be a double celebration because we also want to pay tribute to all of the thirty people who took part in our eight week ‘Couch to 5k’ Programme. This programme makes it easy for those with low fitness levels to join an easy exercise regime which is both affordable and fun.”

“The Couch to 5K has real physical and mental health benefits”, says Helen, “because exercise boosts your mood and your heart health. The programme also gives you a chance to meet and mix with others at the same level as you.”
