Annual 10k in Ardara on Sunday

The memory of 16–year old Martina Maguire from Ardara, who died in January 2012, will be remembered this Sunday at a 10k road race in Ardara.

Atheletes from all over the north west will take part in the annual Martina Maguire 10k road race and walk.

Registration is in the Parish Centre in Ardara from 11.30am with refresments served in the centre afterwards.

All funds raised on the day will go to Breast Cancer Research at Letterkenny University Hospital.

Known as the Ardarathon, the event has succeeded in attracting up on 1,000 participants since it began.

The occasion is a fitting tribute to Martina who during her short life was a shining example of kindness, patience and courage and the turnout by the people of Donegal is testament to her popularity in the community.

The race starts at 1pm
