A local children’s cancer charity is calling on people from across Northern Ireland to get absolutely ‘boggin’ to help support children with cancer.
Cancer Fund for Children’s Bog Run will return to Castlewellan Forest Park on Sunday 7th October, and the charity hopes that hundreds will get stuck in to the 5k mud run to raise funds to support families affected by cancer.
The Bog Run is a light hearted event, which requires no prior experience, and only a determination to have some good old muddy fun. Now in its fourth year, the 2018 Bog Run promises to be even bigger, better and boggier than ever before.
Instagrammer and former Miss Northern Ireland, Tiffany Brien is getting behind the event this year, and is encouraging local people to lace up and join her.
“I can’t wait to get absolutely boggin’ on Sunday 7th October, and get stuck in to having some fun for an amazing local cause. Whilst the Bog Run can be quite physically challenging, you don’t need to be a gym bunny or marathon runner to give it a go.
“It’s all about getting together with friends, family or work colleagues, enjoying a fun day out, and raising lots of money to help Cancer Fund for Children support local families living with cancer. I would encourage anyone considering it to sign up and get involved. Let’s beat the bog together!”
Funds raised from the Bog Run will enable Cancer Fund for Children to provide a range of practical, emotional and financial support, as well as free therapeutic short breaks, to families, to help them cope with the devastating impact of cancer on their lives.
The Bog Run is open to anyone over the age of 12. Registration for the event is £20 with minimum sponsorship of £80 for anyone aged 18+, and minimum sponsorship of £50 for age 12-17. Participants will receive a free fundraising pack when they register as well as a goody bag and Bog Run medal for finishing the challenge.
The Bog Run is kindly sponsored by EUROSPAR and ViVOXTRA.
