Knowing that school plays an important role in facilitating the all-round development of our young people, Bord na Móna Recycling was delighted to send two special and well-loved characters to take part in the run and support the school. There was great excitement amongst the crowd on the arrival and attendance of Annie and Evan!
A formidable spirit was on show from locals who braved the weather and fought the excuses to take a rest. Despite the hail, snow and rain on the day, 215 people lined up to run the race. It was a fantastic testament to local giving and community togetherness.
The quickest time was from Cian McDonald with a super time of 16 minutes 50 seconds. Unfortunately, Annie and Evan did not do so well and have committed to preparing a training plan for next year. Nonetheless, they enjoyed a hard-earned hot chocolate after the race!
As part of our commitment to community groups, Bord na Móna Recycling was delighted to contribute €1000 to the fundraising on the day. Congratulations to all those who took part. You can see more photos of the fantastic day here at Facebook.com/STJohns5k
