Cara Challenge organisers call for applications from charities and community groups

first_imgThe 10th annual Cara Bundoran Run is set to be staged next year with up to 2,500 athletes to compete in the 5k, 10k and a 10-mile run.The event, which will take place on the 13th and 14th of March 2020, is a firm staple in the athletics calendar for both amateur and professional runners. Many use it as a benchmark for future events during the year.Joint managing director of title sponsors Cara Pharmacy, Canice Nicholas said “It’s a great testament to the support of everyone who takes part that the event is still running 10 years later. Little did we think in 2010 that it would turn into the success that it has become. “We are also delighted to have supported so many charities over the years with well over €100,000 contributed locally and nationally.”Applications will open shortly for the 2020 charity partners and any registered charity wishing to apply should contact Sarah at Cara Pharmacy Head Office on 071 9822002.Registration for run participants is now open online at www.carabundoranrun.com.There are discounted rates for those who register before December 31st and places are filling up fast. The event, which has been growing and growing for the last number of years, will once again be capped so early registration is advised to avoid disappointment.Race Director Eamon Harvey of Tir Conaill Athletic Club added: “Now’s the time to start the training and building up the mileage so you’re comfortable running the 10 miles (or 10k) when the time comes.“Take it gradually and work up the distance and if you can join a group of runners then it becomes a little bit easier as the support and encouragement will be there too.”The two-day event forms part of the Discover Bundoran Calendar of Events for 2020 and falls just ahead of St Patrick’s Day (Tuesday 17th of March) so provides an ideal opportunity for participants to take a few days away.Full details on registration, route and tips can be found on www.carabundoranrun.com Cara Challenge organisers call for applications from charities and community groups was last modified: November 13th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bundoranlast_img
