This is the 15th. year of the Run. About 80 plus people took part in the event, coming from all over Sligo, Mayo,Leitrim, Roscommon and from London, Dublin including the whole Burke family. Cork & Belfast were also represented on the occasion. A Social evening was held in Higgins Lounge with music provided by popular Gurteen musician, Christy O' Grady. According to Kiernan Mc Gill - fund raiser extraordinaire and past Sligo Person of the year and Fun Run organiser, the amount raised when all the sponsorship cards / monies / raffles & social evening in Higgins Lounge are collected, they should be well on the way to raising 10,000 plus Euro
