Cara Bundoran 2019
The build up to the Cara Bundoran Challenge 2019 on the 8th, 9th and 10th March continues to attract a record entry. The hard working organising committee led by Cara boss and main sponsor Canice Nicholas indicate that this years event will be even bigger and better than previous years.
A record entry in the Friday evening's 5k, Saturdays 10miles walk, 10miles and 10k runs and Sundays 21k TT Cycle will be capped at 2,500 participants. Many entrants are repeating for the eighth year and indicate the inclusive and welcoming atmosphere, superb organisation, an athlete friendly course that has breath taking 'Wild Atlantic Way' segments along the Leitrim loop and the final two K around Roguey to the finish at the sea front as attractions The excellent prize fund - of over €8k - and goodie bags, specially struck medallions and T shirts for all finishers and the social inclusiveness are all mentioned.
Former winner John Travers will contest the European Indoors this weekend in Glasgow and the following Saturday will lead a star studded entry and attempt to break the Cara 10 miles course record.
The Cara Bundoran Challenge is unique in that it attracts the elite international athlete, the club athlete and the participant -jogger and walker that is attempting to regain fitness. Last years, Friday nights 5k, attracted over 500 entrants -many from local primary and secondary schools.
This year Cara are honoured to have Cathal Gallagher of Operation Transformation fame as official starter for the 5k event
