Strandhill is one of the most diverse and welcoming locations for outdoor activities and socialising opportunitities on the west coast of Ireland.
However some of the walking and running trails through the forest and along the coast are being used as dumping grounds, we ask the question, are our outdoor natural spaces for TRAILS ‘R for TRASH?
Join the Havin’ a Laugh crew on Fri June 1st 7-9pm for Sligo’s first #plogging event, a Swedish craze of picking up litter while out jogging!
Calling all active souls to clean as you go. We’ll have guided trailrunning for beginners (3km) and advanced (10km) runners hosted by qualified guides from Fitness4All and Northwest Adventure Tours
This event is supported by Seastainability, Sligo CoCo, The Draft House and Clean Coasts and kicks off Clean Coasts Week which is from Fri June 1st to Sun June 10th.
As a fundraising inititiative booking is required for the guided trailrunning with a suggested €10 donation on the day. There are sponsor packs available if you wish to raise more in advance of the event. All funds raised go directly to the Havin’ a Laugh service, providing vouchers for Life-Enhancing activities to people in mental health recovery.
Making Connections, Getting Outdoors, Havin’ a Laugh, oh and this time #plogging 😉
