Char­ity trails event in Glen­dalough

Bray People - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of trail-blaz­ers are ex­pected to take to the hills of Glen­dalough later this year as they join the bat­tle against blind­ness.

The eighth an­nual Glen­dalough Trail will take place at 11 a.m. on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4, in aid of Fight­ing Blind­ness. With the op­tion of a 15.5km run or a 9.5km jog/walk, the event is open to peo­ple of all fit­ness lev­els.

Over 350 par­tic­i­pants em­braced the chal­lenge last year and now walk­ers, run­ners and jog­gers are be­ing called upon to join their ranks and take on this scenic, off-road ex­pe­ri­ence.

The Glen­dalough Trail is unique, with a care­fully planned route through the beau­ti­ful val­ley and a great va­ri­ety of un­der­foot ter­rain. Although chal­leng­ing, it is also very achiev­able.

Spa­ces are lim­ited be­cause of en­vi­ron­men­tal re­stric­tions in the area so par­tic­i­pants are ad­vised to reg­is­ter early to avoid dis­ap­point­ment at www. Glen­

The en­try fee is €20, with a fur­ther €50 min­i­mum fundrais­ing tar­get, and all pro­ceeds will sup­port the quest for cures and treat­ments for blind­ness.

Fight­ing Blind­ness works with rare, ge­netic, age-re­lated, and de­gen­er­a­tive eye con­di­tions that af­fect an es­ti­mated 246,000 peo­ple in Ire­land.
