Our Olympian Aoife Cooke was in Fota Wildlife Park this week to launch this years 'Cheetah Run', together with our race sponsor John Buckley Sports and Brooks running. This promises to be a fantastic event, a rare opportunity to run a 5K race (adults & over 16 years) or a 1 mile race for those aged 11-15 years, through the grounds of Fota Wildlife park. Perhaps you'll have a chance to race a Giraffe or an Ostrich, you will certainly run past Cheetahs, Lions, Tigers, and so many more of Fota's famous inhabitants! This is a unique event, one not to be missed.
