Carrick Road Runners 12th Annual GOAL MILE (To Start at 1100 hrs Sunday 25th December 2018)

Our Mile has become a tradition in our town and we have contributed enormously to people that are an awful lot less fortunate than ourselves.All funds raised go to all of GOAL'S various humanitarian programmes across the developing world. GOAL has programmes in 13 countries worldwide right now. So please come along and run or WALK 1 mile through the streets of our lovely town and afterwards enjoy a mulled wine, some Christmas cake and a chat and maybe a photo with Santa who takes time out to be with us each year. We will try our best to start at 11 sharp as those who are running get very cold if it runs late. Looking forward to seeing you all on the day.
