1,000 people are expected to Join SPAR and Ray D’Arcy for 5K in Letterkenny on 15th September.
Now in its fourth year, the Join SPAR and Ray for 5K series of lunchtime runs, in association with Athletics Ireland, will also take place in Athlone, Limerick, Cork and Dublin’s Phoenix Park.
Speaking at the launch of this year’s Join SPAR and Ray for 5K series, Ray D’Arcy of Today FM said; “When we began these events four years ago I hoped to get a lot of people turned on to running, with the hope that it might be the start of something new for them – a new and healthy lifestyle that they will embrace for the rest of their lives.”
Anne Gallagher, SPAR Marketing Manager said; “We are delighted to return for a fourth year of the Join SPAR and Ray for 5K series. Since beginning this initiative four years ago, over 20,000 people have taken up the 5k challenge. At SPAR we’ve been successfully promoting leisure running in Ireland over the past number of years through our support for events including the SPAR Great Ireland Run and the Join SPAR and Ray for 5k initiative. For us it’s a really meaningful approach to sponsorship as more people aim to get out and get healthy.”
The Join SPAR and Ray for 5K Letterkenny event is being organised locally by Letterkenny Athletics Club. Speaking at the launch event Danny McDaid; said, “It is great that Letterkenny has been chosen as one of this year’s locations. We look forward to welcoming Ray, SPAR and the team on 15th September. We’d like to encourage people to sign up for what promises to be an enjoyable event and to fly the flag for Donegal.”
