Records broken at the 2018 Balbriggan Cancer Support Group 10k/Half Marathon

March 17, 2018 0

A big congratulations to the hundreds of athletes who took part in the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group 10k/ Half Marathon this morning.  The weather was freezing cold with snow imminent  but this didn’t deter the many people who turned up to take part.   The atmosphere was great as the athletes gathered at the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group centre before the race and it was uplifting to hear stories told of the the reasons that people had taken part.

On behalf of Balbriggan Cancer Support Group, a big thanks to all the athletes, sponsors, supporters and volunteers on a fantastic event, you are true stars and an inspiration to all…
