Ramble Aid fun run takes centre stage this weekend
By Brendan Grehan
RAMBLE AID is this Saturday and if you want to participate in one of three walks and raise money for charity, then you have no excuse.
Established in 2011 by South Dublin County Sports Partnership, Ramble Aid has successfully promoted walking routes and parks. This year, the running of the event has been handed over to walking club The Kiltipper Ramblers.
Three walks will take place on Saturday, September 26, which will be supervised by leaders and Dublin Mountain Partnership Rangers.
The walks include a family 5k and 10k loop walk of Bohernabreena Reservoir and children go free, an 8k ramble of Maureen’s Brook in Glenasmole and a four peaks challenge, which encompasses a 10k hike, Seefin to Kippure loop, for those with a good level of fitness.
Registration for all three walks is €15, children go free, with monies raised going to TeenLine and and the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice. Walkers can also raise funds for their own chosen charity. The registration fee includes sponsorship cards, a Ramble Aid t-shirt and a Ramble Aid water bottle.
Registration is now open at www.rambleaid.ie or walkers taking part in the Bohernabreena walk can register on the day.
