Runamuck with Finbar 2017

Jan, 2017
What is Run a Muck?
The Runamuck Challenge is a 5.5km (1 lap) or 11k (2 laps) cross-country event over a wet and mucky course with various manmade and natural obstacles like bale "jumps", net scrambles, super slides, tarzan swings, bridges, ditches, streams, tyres and tunnels. The event is for walkers, joggers and runners. And not the faint-hearted.
This year’s exhilarating Runamuck event will take place on Saturday 11th March in the Coolcarrigan Estate in Co Kildare.

Director of Fundraising for ISPCC Childline, Gill Waters, said: “The fun-soaked Runamuck event is always a good challenge and loads of fun; collecting money for ISPCC Childline Childline gives it an added bonus. The course will ensure you get splashed, drenched and covered in mud but it’s a great excuse to do something different!
“ISPCC Childline depends on public donations to keep our services running so your fundraising and donations will be a part of every text and call we answer.”
Childline volunteer, Brian Caulfield, said: “I competed in Runamuck in October 2016 in aid of ISPCC Childline and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. I took party with five work colleagues and it was “perfect” weather for it (that is, cold and wet). The day was so much fun and well worth the sore limbs after the event. Everyone there is out to have a good time, help each other and have a laugh while traipsing through the muck and over the obstacles. I would recommend it to anyone to get involved and help raise money for a great cause as ISPCC.”
