Something for everyone at Breffni 3 Provinces challenge

Participants are being encouraged to enter this year's 3 Province Breffni Challenge as it closes in on raising €1m for charity.

The Breffni 3 Province Challenge is set to be bigger and better than ever this year, with organisers ready to hit a big milestone of €1m raised for cancer charities over the 18 years since the event was set up.

The challenge includes walking, running and cycling across three provinces and will take place over the August Bank Holiday.

The current total of funds raised over the lifetime of the challenge stands at €976,000, with the €1m mark ready to be hit in August.

There will be a 100k cycle, a 25k cycle, a half marathon, a 10k (AAI Approved) and a 5k fun run, so people of all fitness levels can take part.
