On Saturday June 29th the first ever Monaghan’s Fittest Company Event took place in Rossmore Park.
This was hosted and organised by Silver Hill Farm in association with Glaslough Harriers. Over 40 teams from various local companies registered for the race, an amazing uptake for an event in its first year, with all proceeds going to Errigal Truagh Special Needs.
The Corporate Relay Race catered for people of all abilities and fitness levels with each company team consisting of 4 team members and each member challenged to run a 1Km distance.
Despite the threat of rain prior to the start of the race, the weather was excellent throughout and the 200+ people created a great buzz in the Park.
Sean McCaffrey from the Northern Sound MC’D with music and food trucks also on site to add to the atmosphere.
There was great excitement at the finish line and when the times were checked the winners were announced and presented with their prizes.
Most importantly an amazing € 10,047.00 was raised for the chosen charity – Errigal Truagh Special Needs.
Overall Winners – Silver Hill Farm
Ladies Team – Squealing Pig Bar & Restaurant
Men’s Team – Silver Hill Farm
Mixed Team – Upstairs Downstairs
The organising committee would like to sincerely thank all companies that participated in this unique charity event as well as the companies and organisations who donated and sponsored resources on the day.
Also a big thank you to the large number of volunteers who helped with race & traffic management on the day.
The event was an overwhelming success and within a half an hour of the finish local companies were already plotting, planning and strategizing for Monaghan’s Fittest Company 2020.
