Practically every evening of the week you will encounter runners and cyclists along the roads of every corner of the county.
The growth in activity based pastimes has been phenomenal in recent years and many are putting these activities to some very great causes.
In the present day volunteerism plays a big part in many projects around the county and last weekend at the Abbey Vocational School in Donegal where hundreds of men, women and children ran 5K to raise money for the school.
For all the photographs from the 5k see the Thursday edition of the Donegal Democrat.
