In conjunction with the Kilcar Street Festival committee and the Molloy family, we are very pleased to announce the Inaugural John Molloy Memorial 10Km & 5km Road Race / Fun Run / Walk which will take place in Kilcar on the 5th August 2018 at 3.00pm.
It is very fitting that this yearly event will now be organised in John’s memory. John died on the 28th April 2017 after an enduring battle with illness, and even during his toughest days, he still braved the elements of our every changing climate to get into the fresh air and complete his daily exercise. He was a gentleman, who was dedicated to his family and to looking after his health through his love of cycling and running.
The event this year will be very well promoted, and we expect a large turnout for event, from which all proceeds with be donated to the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) and the Donegal Hospice.
The 5km and 10km race will have placings in the following categories and all participants under 12 will also get a complimentary race medal.
5 Km U–18 Girls 5 Km U–18 Boys
5 Km Open Ladies 5 Km Open Men’s
10 Km Open Ladies 10 Km Open Men’s
We are asking local businesses and organisations to get involved by supporting this special Memorial Race and by helping to raise much needed funds for OCF and the Donegal Hospice. To make this event successful we are looking for business / organisational sponsors for the six categories above, as well as a sponsor for the kid’s medals, and for eight 4ft x 4ft hoardings (which will have sponsors name on each one) erected in the local area. Category or Hoarding Sponsorship costs €50 each and we would greatly appreciate if you would be willing to support this very special event. Supporting businesses and organisations will be promoted daily on the Race Facebook Page as well as being acknowledged publicly at the Memorial Race Day on the 5th August 2018.
