Speaking to donegal daily, Sean mcCrudden from the outdoor centre said ” there are several other events which go through Gartan including ‘THE RACE’ which we also host. But this is the first to be based solely around the Gartan area. There will be plenty of backup on the day and competitors will never be more than 6km distance from the centre, making it an ideal course for those new to the sport. With 3 weeks to go there is still plenty of time to sharpen up your fitness in time for the event.” All funds raised will go towards developing new much needed sports facilities in the Kilmacrennan area.Raymond Shields from the Kilmacrennan development committee said. “We are delighted to be involved with this venture with the outdoor centre and it promises to be a fantastic event.

As well as a running/walking track and changing facilities.”Places are limited and are filling up fast.
