PREPARATIONS are well under way for the 41st annual Christmas Day Charity Run in Nenagh

As usual, the highly popular event is expected to attract a large turnout of runners, joggers, walkers and even cyclists who are welcome to take part.

Organised by Tony Hassett, the four mile run will start as usual from the CBS grounds at 11am.

Over the past forty years Tony has seen participation in the event grow from a small group of enthusiastic runners in the early days to what has now become a landmark fixture of the festive season, attracting large groups of athletes, joggers, walkers and cyclists.

Almost 200 took part in the event last year, and Tony is urging as many people as possible to show up again this December 25th to tackle the four mile route.

It's all in a good cause, with optional contributions invited for a bucket collection and all proceeds being donated to the Nenagh Day Care Centre.

In keeping with the festive spirit, the names of all those taking part will be entered in a free draw for numerous spot prizes.

Over the last decade the run has generated up to €10,000 in funds for the Day Care Centre which provides a marvellous service to elderly people living in the town and surrounding areas.

So get out there this Christmas Day and build up an real appetite for the big dinner and raising funds for such a worthy cause.
