Last year’s event was extremely successful attracting over 1,500 entrants and raising in excess of €15,000 for the officially designated charities - The North West Hospice and St Vincent de Paul.

The Challenge which is now a must compete feature on the Irish Athletics calendar also supported the local RNLI with a life – saving Defibrillator to assist with the work they carry out every day. Many of the runners and walkers also had their own sponsorship cards for local and national charities.

The Cara Run committee are delighted to announce it plans to be a bigger and better event than ever before! 2014 see’s the existing Cara 10k and 10 mile run/walk and also introducing a 5k Fun Run on the Friday and a Surf or Cycle event on the Sunday.
