Sunday 26th August
McKeon Group Sponsor Ashbourne Oxfam 6km Charity Run
The event was a massive success and was enjoyed by so many people. The entire event was very family orientated and it helped greatly that the weather was beautiful on the morning of the race.
We were a little nervous as to how many competitors we would have entering the race but with some hard work from the whole team on the promotion of the race (through local media, flyers, radio, road signs and facebook), we attracted 110 entrants and their families! The buzz created on the day was infectious and the feedback has been extremely positive. Here are just some of the comments received on the race facebook page:
