5K Fun Run 19th September 2021
On Sunday September 19th we are hosting a fundraising 5K Fun Run in Fore. The run starts on the Abbey Road at the entrance to "Nancy to Nellie". Registration is in the village and starts at 10.30am.
The Run itself starts at 12 noon, proceeds in an anti-colckwise direction and finishes at the Abbey carpark on the road from Castlepollard.
In addition to the main event we will be offering a shorter option of a walk on the "Nancy to Nellie" route, for families with smaller kids, which will start and finish at the same place as the 5K. (ie starting on the Abbey road and finishing at the Abbey carpark)
Stewarts will be in place at all junctions and danger points to take care of participants in both events. There will be a number of water stations along the route and we have motorbike marshals patrolling the route to alert traffic which will be diverted where needed to make the route as safe as possible.
