McMahon's Supervalu Renews Sponsorship For The Castleblayney 5K Walk/Run

Castleblayney Faughs are delighted yet again to announce that Mc Mahon's Supervalu have come on board as the main sponsor of the seventh Castleblayney 5K walk/run which will take place on Sunday the 26th of November at 2pm. This year the event will also see the return of the 2K route for all the Children under 14 at 1pm.

This year’s guest speaker will be Eve McCrystal. Eve is arguably the country’s top female cyclist at the moment. In 2016 she competed in the Rio Paralympics as guide for partially sighted cyclist, Georgie Dunleavey and helped guide the two to an unprecedented Gold and Silver medal place. There will be a questions and answers session with Eve in the Glencarn Hotel after the 5K Run.

The walk/run, which traditionally marks the end of the 12-week training programme called “Operation TransFAUGHSmation” was put in place as a target for the participants to test their fitness by either walking or running the route. This year the fitness programme has attracted over 200 participants and it’s anticipated with the progress they have made to date, that all 200 will be able to complete the challenge.

The Mc Mahon's Supervalu Castleblayney 5K is open to everyone and the Faughs club very much encourage all locals to don their runners and join in on the fun. The run is a real good community day. Further details on the event will be published over the next number of weeks.

Registration is available online at www.castleblayneyfaughs.com or www.Runireland.com. Preregistration cost only €10.

There will also be registration on the day in the Glencarn Shopping Centre, costing €15. U14’s entry fee is €5.
