THE Colin Mcrae Charity Run is head­ing back to Belfast on September 16th or­gan­ised by a group of lo­cal Subaru en­thu­si­ast own­ers, and sup­ported by Subaru NI and Subaru Ire­land. Now in its third year the event is a trib­ute to the late great Colin Mcrae – on the tenth an­niver­sary of Colin’s tragic loss the event plans to cel­e­brate his many motorsport achieve­ments and keep his name and legacy very much alive.

The event starts from East­wood Mo­tors Subaru in Lis­burn, and ends at Nearys Subaru in Lusk, Co Dublin. Registration is from 10am with fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties such as a Su­per­hero kids meet and greet area, BBQ, bouncy cas­tle, prize raf­fle, and re­fresh­ments as well as a Subaru her­itage dis­play and a hy­per­for­mance Subaru BRZ V8 con­ver­sion by lo­cal en­gi­neer­ing spe­cial­ists Mo­men­tum Tun­ing.

An es­ti­mated 150 Subarus from across the UK and Ire­land are ex­pected, with spec­ta­tors wel­comed at the start/fin­ishes. The run de­parts from Lis­burn at 13:00 tak­ing a scenic route through North­ern Ire­land with a planned rest stop be­fore fin­ish­ing in Lusk Co Dublin at 18:00 with more fam­ily fun, prizes and re­fresh­ments. All pro­ceeds are in aid of An­gel Wishes, a lo­cal reg­is­tered charity that aims to make des­per­ately ill chil­drens’ dreams come true.

There will be lots of prize give­aways – Subaru NI have do­nated men’s and lady’s jack­ets and Subaru goody bags with as­sorted branded bits and bobs. Subaru Ire­land have do­nated an au­to­graphed Dublin GAA team shirt, and Subaru Ire­land branded pad­dock jack­ets. All par­tic­i­pants re­ceive a goody bag at the start, with a cov­eted Con­cours D’el­e­gance Tro­phy go­ing to the “Best Subaru” en­trant on the day.
