Runners will get an early start on Saturday, June 23, when the Juice Plus 10k Dawn Run takes place from Pairc Sean Mac Diarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon.
This is the second year for this road race/walk which is being organised by the Leitrim Ladies Gaelic Football Board as a major fundraiser and this unique early morning event and attracted great interest last year and the organisers see potential for this year to surpass last year’s participation.
The Dawn Run is sponsored by Damian Brennan from Cloone, supplier of the Juice Plus product. Damien is a former Leitrim Senior team selector and father of Leitrim stars Sinead, Aisling and Lorraine Brennan.
