Gorey District Hospi­tal fun run dur­ing Mar­ket House Fes­ti­val

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

This year’s Gorey Mar­ket House Fes­ti­val in­cludes a fam­ily friendly Su­per­hero Fun Run, which has been or­gan­ised on the Au­gust Bank Hol­i­day Sun­day to raise funds for the Friends of Gorey District Hospi­tal.

Par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to be a hero for the hospi­tal and come dressed as their favourite su­per­hero. How­ever or­di­nary mor­tals and he­roes in civil­ian dis­guise are also wel­come to take part. Vil­lains will also be given a spe­cial pass for the day to al­low them to take part.

The event takes place on Sun­day, Au­gust 5, and all are asked to as­sem­ble at Gorey’s Main Street at 2.30 p.m. Spec­ta­tors are most wel­come.

The he­roes can run, walk, push a buggy, or even walk their su­per­hero dog along the child friendly 2km route which takes in a loop of Gorey Town Park, start­ing and fin­ish­ing at Main Street.

En­try is by do­na­tion but par­tic­i­pants can pur­chase a Su­per­hero Pack for €10, which in­cludes a cape, mask, a voucher for face paint­ing, and good­ies.

Adults can pur­chase a spe­cially de­signed Mar­ket House Fes­ti­val t-shirt for €10. Pro­ceeds go to the Friends of Gorey District Hospi­tal.

Sun­day af­ter­noon’s ac­tiv­i­ties also in­clude mu­sic on the Main Street stage, a street mar­ket and food stalls, face paint­ing, and much more, so it should be a fun day out for all.

Mu­sic on Sun­day be­gins ear­lier in the day, with a strong lo­cal el­e­ment among the acts on stage for the Mar­ket House Fes­ti­val.
