ABOUT RUNNING BLIND
Originating from an idea by Colm 'Bootsy' Fearon after guiding a visually impaired runner, RUNNING BLIND is intended to be a fun event for all that raises awareness of visually impaired running, promote #inclusion, and raise much needed funds for LOCAL charity, helping LOCAL families.
The organising team are avid runners, experienced event organisers and volunteers - no-one on the team is paid.
