‘Run The Line’ is a fundraising event for Dublin Wicklow Mountain
Rescue Team, taking place on Saturday 10 November 2018. The event
consists of two separate races (13km and 26km) across the Dublin
Mountains, starting and finishing in Glencullen Adventure Park, and
taking in many spectacular locations along the way offering
breath-taking views of Dublin.
The Dublin Wicklow Mountain Rescue
Team was set up to help people in need of assistance in the hills and
mountains, and we cater for a broad range of recreational users of the
Dublin and Wicklow mountains. For a number of years we have successfully
run both night and day time hikes over the mountains, to fundraise for
our life-saving activities. There is always a cadre of lean, hardy
hill-runners who choose to do these events much faster that the
majority, by running across the routes. We decided that it might be
worthwhile to host an event specifically for runners and so the idea for
‘Run The Line’ was born.
This year, our fundraising focus is
aimed at supporting our continuing efforts to finally have a home that
is purpose built for the needs of a very busy rescue team. It needs to
be somewhere we can train, store essential gear and equipment, and can
also act as a base from which we can coordinate search and rescue
operations. The team will be out in full force in Glencullen Adventure
Park, and along the route, helping to ensure that ‘Run The Line’ is an
enjoyable and safe event for all participants and their supporters!
