NI Chest Heart and Stroke is calling for road racers and fun runners to take to the streets of Ballymena to help raise money for Ballymena’s chest heart and stroke groups.
This will be the 3rd year running for the Fairhill Ballymena 5 Mile Road Race, Fun Run and Walk. The event is sponsored by Fairhill, organised by Ballymena Town Centre Development in partnership with Ballymena Runners will take place on Wednesday, June 4 at 7pm.
Natalie Jackson, Commercial and Marketing Manager for Fairhill comments, “This event is definitely for everyone to get on their running shoes.
The competitive runners will pound the streets in the 5 mile Road Race, but there is also the chance to have some fun with a 2.5mile fun run and walk for those looking for a lighter challenge. And it’s all for a great cause- Fairhill’s charity of the year- NI Chest Heart and Stroke.”
Runners and walkers can register for the Road Race, Fun Run and Walk through www.nichs.org.uk, where you can download the registration form, you can register at The Braid Ballymena Town Hall & pick up application forms from Sports Direct, Fairhill Shopping Centre, as well as through www.ballymenarunners.org. Entry fee will be £10 for Road Race, £5 for the Fun Run and Walk- with a free t-shirt or the first 300 competitors.
Valerie Saunders, Corporate Fundraising Manager said: “NI Chest Heart and Stroke is delighted to be working with Fairhill, Ballymena runners and Ballymena Town Development, not only in encouraging people to get running and stay healthy, but also raising sponsorship to help people in their local community who are affected by chest, heart and stroke conditions.”
