With the continued support of Seagate, the Foyle Hospice 7th ‘Male Walk/Run & Junior Boys Mini Marathon’ will take place on Sunday, 25.

There are two scenic routes to choose from, a longer 5 mile route around the Peace Bridge and Foyle Bridge or a shorter Junior Boys Mini marathon route of 2 miles from Sainsbury’s Car Park to the Peace Bridge.

In 2005 this event attracted 376 participants, last year we saw this number rise to 800! With nearly 5,000 females supporting the Female Walk we are challenging local men and boys to lend their support and help us this year achieve 1,000 participants.
