Roscommon people young and old are being encouraged to get out and take part in one of two GOAL Miles taking place across the county this festive season.
The Miles will once again offer people an opportunity to exercise, have fun and help raise money and awareness for some of GOAL’s most vital programmes in the developing world.
Now in its 36th year, the GOAL Miles regularly attract tens of thousands of participants each year. People run, jog or walk a Mile in villages, towns and cities the length and breadth of Ireland.
More than 130 Miles will be held across the country over the festive period, confirming the ever-growing popularity of the event.
The organiser of the Mile at Padraig Pearses’ Miles will be held at two locations in Roscommon this year: at Pádraig Pearses GAA Club on Christmas Day from 11.30 am-1.30 pm; and at Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle on December 30th at 11 am.
