Louise Montgomery from Ballymena is urging locals to ‘get boggin’ for Cancer Fund for Children at the charity’s Bog Run on Sunday, October 9.
The event which is back for a second year will once again see Castlewellan Forest Park filled with charity runners, ready to get covered in mud for a great cause as Cancer Fund for Children’s Bog Run returns with a 5Km route over natural, muddy obstacles.
Louise, took part in last year’s event with her friend Cara, and thoroughly enjoyed the light-hearted fund raiser.
She said: “It was something I had never done before and I really fancied a challenge. Everyone was mucking in, pardon the pun, and encouraging each other. I am going to do again this year, I’m just trying to rope in another unsuspecting partner to join me!”
Registration for the event is £30 with minimum sponsorship of £100. Anyone over the age of 16 can take part, those under 18 will need written permission from a parent or guardian.
