Running shoes at the ready as everyone is welcome to take part in Broughshane’s 5k/10k race and Fun Run Day on Monday, August 1 at 7pm.
Runners will be competing in either a 10k or 5k run with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd male and female places in both categories and goodie bags and medals for all who take part.
For those of a less “energetic” persuasion, there will also be a 1k Fun Run around the playing fields at the Community Centre- where there will also be changing facilities and showers available for any runners.
The Fun Run is open to all ages and everyone who completes the course will be awarded a medal.
As well as being a major community event, sponsored by local businesses – James McNeill Grocery & Hardware / YESSS/ Spar Broughshane/ Fitness Elite/ Moore Concrete.
All proceeds will go to the North West Mountain Rescue Team, who have a base in the village, from which they undertake their valuable life-saving role.
Lexie Scott from Broughshane & District Community Association said: “We are delighted to be involved with this new event which we hope will become an annual run, supporting the terrific work of the North West Mountain Rescue Team”
Stephen Brown. Secretary. Ballymena Runners: “Thank you to Broughshane & District Community Association for supporting the race. We run throughout the local countryside. The NWMRT support us 24/7. It’s great to be supporting them.”
