The Beer Barrel Run
Jun 22 at 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm€100
The Lacken Beer Barrel Run will take place on 22nd June in the beautiful North Mayo coastal village of Kilcummin, Lacken. Teams of eight must somehow carry a 72kg beer barrel along a (literally) breath-taking 8.5km coastal route. There’s one rule, the barrel must not touch the ground!
Kilcummin is best known as the scene of the famous landing in 1798 of the French General Humbert as well as its vast golden strand, rolling sand dunes and lush green fields, located on the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way in Co. Mayo. Now the local community wants to make it synonymous with one of the most demanding adventure races in Ireland.
It is up to the competitors how they carry their barrel. Only stipulations are that the carrying device must not have wheels, and your barrel must be secured to it.
This fundraising event – the first of its kind in Ireland – will take place on Saturday, June 22 at 2pm, supported by Marc Reilly, partner of J. Streicher, and will raise funds for Samaritans Ireland. Entry costs €100 for a team of 8.
For an entry form, call Chairperson, Lacken Enterprise Centre: Tony Robinson 087 9900757.
