The Foods of Athenry are proud to sponsor the first ever MADRA 5K Doggy Dash to help raise money for the vital work MADRA do finding forever homes for unwanted, neglected, abused or abandoned dogs.

The five kilometre sponsored run will take place on Sunday 9th October in Cappagh Park Knocknacarra. Walk, jog or run the 5k route which takes you around the Cappagh Park playing fields and through parts of scenic Barna Woods. The course is flat and fast so perfect for first timers and also a great PB opportunity for the more seasoned runner. Dogs are not permitted to enter but are welcome to come and support! 

Early bird entry of €18 is available until the 5th of September and will go up to €22 thereafter. The first 150 entrants will receive a printed technical running t-shirt to wear on the day.

All online entrants will receive a sponsorship envelope and are asked to try and raise a minimum of €20 for MADRA. A prize will be awarded to the person who raises the most funds. This event is being held in conjunction with MADRA's 'Raise the Wuff' fundraising campaign.

This is a great cause and one close to our hearts. With our most recent (furry) addition to the family a rescue pup called Lennie we know first-hand the amazing work charities like MADRA do to rehabilitate and rehome dogs in need. They are also a wonderful local charity so please come along and support!
