 The Kells Pink Ribbon Walk returns in October with an exciting new brand and route.
“Now in our sixth year, we have decided to expand and grow and make the most of the fact that the heritage town of Kells is ideally located within the innovative Boyne Valley Tourism Initiative,” says Pink Ribbon Walk Chairperson Penny McGowan.
The new Boyne Valley Pink Ribbon Walk will take place on Sunday October 5th during the Irish Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“We are also planning a wonderful new route in and around the heritage town of Kells, so keep an eye on our website and social media outlets for further updates,” says Ms McGowan.
“This year’s 10km route starts and finishes in Kells and takes a circular route around Maudlin, Cherry Hill and the grounds of Headfort House. Some local landowners have generously agreed to open their fields to us for the purpose of the walk – so the route is exclusively open only for the day of the event. The cross-country/road route really showcases our beautiful scenery.”
The Boyne Valley Pink Ribbon Walk will be chipped and timed and it is open to runners and walkers. Families (with children over the age of 12) and teams are also welcome.
Online registration is now open or you can obtain an entry form from sponsors Specsavers (Drogheda and Navan branches), Antonia’s Bookstore in Trim, The Central Navan, Kells Chamber Office, The Bective Kells, Slane Craft Collective, Sonique Hair Salon in Kells, Headfort Arms Hotel and many other local outlets – or by phone on 046 924 0055.
Registration is €20 per person, which includes a sponsorship pack, event t-shirt, medal upon finishing and post-race refreshments.
All participants are asked to try to raise €100. Every cent raised by walkers goes directly to Action Breast Cancer – an initiative of the Irish Cancer Society.
