Walk & Talk: Kiltale’s 24-hour Walking Challenge 2018

February 24, 2018

Kiltale Hurling & Camogie Club, in partnership with local and national charities, would like to announce the launch of its Walk & Talk 24-hour Walking Challenge to take place this May bank holiday weekend.

The Challenge
We aim to have 24 teams walking in relay, continuously, for 24 hours – from 7pm on Saturday 5th May to 7pm on Sunday 6th May.

Each of the 24 teams will be lead by a fearless leader, and will contain a minimum of 10 participants (there is no upper limit on the participants – so go nuts, and try for 20!).

Each participant on the team will be asked to raise a minimum of €100 each in sponsorship, but again there will be no upper limit so reach for the stars. We will have sponsorship cards available but use whatever method you see fit (legal only please) to raise your funds.

As a little challenge, and to focus the mind, we also aim to walk a combined total of 1500km during the event with each team member’s distances being accounted for, so get training!

Launch Night
We will have a launch night for this event when our 24 leaders have been selected. At this launch night we will perform an open draw for the hours that each team will be asked to walk for. We will also reveal details of the novelty hours which will also be assigned to the teams.

The two beneficiary charities will also be revealed on the launch night, and will be present to offer support and encouragement to all participants.

On the Day
The challenge will be finishing as stated above at 7pm on Sunday 6th May, which is the Bank Holiday Weekend.

For the final hour all 24 teams will be recalled to our walking track to finish the challenge together.

We will have a BBQ with all manner of refreshments and entertainment that evening for our participants, sponsors and supporters to enjoy. This will be a great community spirit and all attendance is very welcome.

Please support this event as not only will it help our club and community, but also two very worthy charities!
