Notice...Fota Island 8km Forest Trail Run - Sun 28th June 2015

 This race is coming up on Sunday the 28th of June and is set on the trails around Fota Island Resort.

From the organisers....The Fota Island Challenge Series Forest Trail Run starts at 10.00 a.m. sharp, pre-registration is available on and on the day, entry will be open from 8am to 9.30am in the Recreational Building at Fota Island Resort. Fee per participant is €7.50 pre entry and €12 on the day. Prizes will be awarded for 1st,2nd and 3rd overall male and female at the finish line. The race also has an Athletics Ireland permit.
Competing in the Forest Trail run on Fota Island will be a unforgettable and distinctive experience, running through tall oak trees and forested paths and, depending on the weather and the prevailing winds, parts of the race might happen to the unusual soundtrack created by some of the wild animals in Fota Wildlife Park!

With tea, coffee and biscuits available for participants after the race, plus water stations, showers and plenty of free parking, Fota Island Resort ensure the Forest Trail Run race will be as efficient and well-run as February's successful Challenge Series Sprint Duathlon and the 2014 Challenge Series Sprint Duathlon.  A great day out for athletes of all abilities, their families, supporters and friends, all of whom are very welcome on the day!
