Young and old limbering up for three Tipp GOAL Miles

Tipperary people of all ages and fitness levels are gearing up for three GOAL Miles in their area this Christmas as the popular annual fundraiser returns to the county over the festive period.

The GOAL Mile is held in villages, towns and cities all over Ireland every Christmas and is one of the country’s biggest and longest-running annual fundraising events. The concept is simple: people run or walk a Mile and donate whatever they can afford to GOAL on the day.

Thanks to GOAL Mile organisers and participants, millions have been raised to support GOAL’s work in the developing world since the first Mile was held in 1982.

Tipp Miles will be held on Christmas Day at Ormonde Castle, Carrick-on-Suir, from 11am; and at Fethard Town Hall from 12 noon. There will also be another GOAL Mile starting outside Sarsfields Sports Centre, Thurles, and a date and time yet to be announced. (Check for more details).

If you would like to raise money for your local GOAL Mile in advance of the event, contact your local organiser, or telephone GOAL on 01 2809 779.
