MOHER HILL 7K FOR IMNDA
Each Christmas we hold the Moher Hill 7km run/walk with proceeds going to a nominated charity. For 2021 all funds raised will benefit the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association who are doing fantastic work for those affected by this condition around the country. The event will start at 12 noon on Tuesday December 28th at Upperchurch Community Centre and follow a challenging 7km loop around Moher Hill. Feel free to either run or walk the course.
Adults €10. Kids are free. Because of Covid and to make the event as safe as possible we will be taking donations online this year at https://www.gofundme.com/moher-hill-7k-2021
Who will post the fastest times on the day? Best of luck to all taking part.
