The 'Fight for the Girls' doesn't stop this year!

The 2020 RunDonegal Women’s 5k has been postponed until the summertime.

The popular race/run, which is held at the Finn Valley Centre, had been due to take place on April 5, but the event has been pushed back until Sunday, August 9.

The organising committee took the decision at the weekend to delay the event by four months due to the ongoing fears over the spread of coronavirus.

The official launch of the race took place last Monday and was performed by the new President of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association, Micheál Naughton.

The Brid Carr Fund will again be the beneficiary of the 2020 RunDonegal Women’s 5k walk and run.

The event, hosted by Finn Valley AC, raised €7,500 for the fund last year.

Finn Valley AC’s former Irish Athletics Team Manager, Patsy McGonagle said: “The RunDonegal Women’s 5k is a beautiful event. 600 plus people took part last year and it was a very positive sight.

“The simple tag that we’re putting on the event is: Fight for the Girls!”
