Belfast RRT Attend Fun Run Of The Glens Cycling Event (FROG)

 

Saturday 13 June 2015 brought 640 cyclists to the 10th annual Fun Run of the Glens event, organised by Fujitsu.  Participants cycled either a 25 mile, 50 mile or 100 mile route through the spectacular Glens of Antrim in Northern Ireland.  The participants selflessly completed this challenge in support of two charities:-

  1. Cancer Focus who provide support for cancer patients and bring a more hopeful future to thousands by funding research into cancer.
  2. Marie Curie who offer care, guidance and support to those suffering from terminal illnesses and their families.

With the cyclists raising a significant £48,053 for the above charities through sponsorships, the RRT volunteers from Belfast were glad to be involved in the event which was filled with enthusiasm and a community spirit.  Assistance provided by the RRT included:

  • Help with registration of the participants at the start of the event
  • Route marshalling and traffic control
  • Photography of the cyclists at different stages throughout the route
  • Refreshments marquee
  • Finish line services
RRT volunteers provide assistance in the registration process to speed things up for the cyclists at the beginning of the event.
