Great Wild Atlantic Marathon Walk
8 August @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
It gives us the greatest pleasure to announce that the total amount of the proceeds from the Great Wild Atlantic Marathon Walk held on August 10th is €8,495. This superb figure for 2019 brings our total to €23,322 over the three years to date. This fantastic amount will be presented to Courtmacsherry Harbour Lifeboat on Friday 25th October at the opening night session of the Maire Ni Shitigh weekend which features a panel discussion in the Pier House at 8pm on the Fastnet Yacht Race of 1979.
Again our heartfelt thanks to all the participants, volunteers, sponsors and everyone who helped on the day to ensure that the full Eur 20 walk fee goes directly to the RNLI, the Charity that saves lives at sea. Special mention must be given to the Barryroe GAA for their tireless efforts in promoting and manning this event as part of the RNLI and GAA “Respect the Water” partnership.
It’s onwards and upwards for next year and we are also delighted to announce that the 2020 Walk will take place on Saturday August 8th 2020.
The Walk is much more than a mere fundraising event as it’s part of a bigger initiative involving the RNLI and the GAA in the promotion of the Respect The Water Campaign to help prevent drownings at sea.
