Just two weeks remain to the start of the very popular and well supported Roscommon Community Challenge, a moonlight walk/run around Roscommon town which takes place on Friday March 3, at 8pm.
With both Roscommon Special Olympics and Roscommon Sports Park being the chosen charities for this year's event, this community challenge is certain to appeal to all walkers, runners, joggers, individuals, teams and families from the Midlands region.
As in previous years this challenge has proven extremely popular with a great response from a large cohort, both locally and within the Midlands region, who signed up to be part of the training programme. There has been huge progression since training started in early January and participants are really looking forward to getting to the starting line where a new 10km route will await.
Roscommon Special Olympics are a remarkable bunch of athletes, and the club are delighted to be the beneficiaries of this year’s Community Challenge. There is a thriving club within the town with bowlers and swimmers meeting every week and the club are looking forward to resuming on the astro pitch at Roscommon Community Sports Park shortly.
Roscommon Special Olympics are incredibly grateful to the Community Sports Park, for the use of their facilities throughout the year. This event is especially important to the Club and proceeds will enable the continued provision of sports to a most wonderful bunch of fantastic athletes. The second charity is Roscommon Community Sports Park (RCSP ), This is a wonderful facility and a great example of true community spirit. The building is a busy spot and is used by a variety of community groups.
Without doubt, none of this would be possible without the encouragement and professionalism received from Roscommon Sports Partnership and organisers are extremely grateful to Co-Ordinator Noel Feeley and his staff David Brady, Michael O’ Donnell, and Martin Hannon for all their support.
Extending a word of thanks to all who help with the running of the event on the night, organisers are currently recruiting volunteers to help marshall the route and as usual businesses are offered an opportunity to promote their business with an attractive sponsorship option. For further details on both please contact Jacqueline McCormack 0861721181.
