50KM Challenge almost at €25,000

Our 50KM Challenge is now well underway since it’s official start on Saturday.

We have 200 people signed up and ready to take part in the Challenge with many people already well on their way to 50KM.

Supporters have came up with different ways of completing their challenges with many choosing to Walk or Run their 50KM or a combination of both.

One supporter, Eileen Higgins is going to complete her 50KM along with her horse, Smokey and Niall Curneen, a Season Ticket holder is hoping to finish off his 50KM Challenge by running the Belfast City Marathon at the end of the month. Niall ran an astonishing 34KM on Sunday alone.

Members of the Bit O’ Red Supporters Trust are out in force with the likes of Gerard O’ Connor, Donal Kelly, Susan Brennan, Rion Burnside and the Oates Family among others all beginning their 50KM Challenges over the last few days.

Staff members Shane Crossan and Conor O’ Grady have began their challenges at the weekend and members of the club’s Management Committee are also beginning their journeys.

All our teams are also signed up from Men’s and Women’s First Team’s to Academy teams with all the players and staff taking part in the Challenge through training and games throughout April.

Sean Dwyer is being remembered fondly as his daughter Deirdre signed up for the Challenge in his honor this weekend, and has already raised a large amount of money on behalf of the club.

We will continue to keep an eye on all our participants and give people plenty of mentions throughout the month of April as we all get to our 50KM targets together.
