As autumn approaches, local heart and stroke charity Croi is encouraging everyone to set some fitness goals of walking, jogging, or running by aiming to participate in the third annual Croí Galway Night Run on the Prom which takes place this year on Friday October 13 at 8pm and will once again be sponsored by Evergreen Healthfoods.
Last year, more than 1,200 people of all ages, shapes, and sizes participated in this novel fun run on the Prom. Each runner has the option of recording his/her time or just completing the three mile distance just for fun.
This year all participants will receive a commemorative technical long sleeve running T-shirt, a Team Croí neck scarf, and an exclusive Evergreen Healthfoods voucher and medal at the finish line.
“Evergreen are so proud to be the title sponsor again for this year’s Croí Night Run,” says Patrick Carroll, Evergreen’s marketing manager. “Last year’s event was a great success and this year we cannot wait to see the response. Croí is such a natural partner for us as we both share the same ethos of helping people to live healthier lives. This event also helps to raise much needed awareness about heart disease and stroke and the impact it has on the community.”
