Adare to Survive 2015 to partner with Clionas Foundation



ADARE TO SURVIVEOVER 2,500 competitors are set to descend on Adare again this year for a challenge unlike any other in the county.

For the third consecutive year, the Adare To Survive team are preparing to welcome thousands of competitors to Clonshire Equestrian Centre on September 27 for a festival atmosphere of military challenges, team building, fundraising and a dollop of fun.

The 7.5km obstacle course provides individuals, small or large groups, sports clubs, charities and corporate companies the opportunity to gather together to “endeavour, endure and enjoy” taking part in this event.

This year’s challenge consists of 42 naturally occurring and man-made obstacles including climbing, crawling, water and mud features.




Registration for the event is now open and you can secure your place by clicking here.

This year’s charity partner is again Cliona’s Foundation, which provides assistance to families with critically ill children.

“We are delighted to be the chosen charity partner for Adare to Survive 2015,” said Brendan Ring, a past competitor, and father of the late Cliona.

“We are looking forward to taking part in what is a very challenging and exhilarating experience. The event is growing from strength to strength and Cliona’s Foundation are delighted to be part of this challenge”.

Organisers Ray Nash and Mark Tuohy said they are delighted to be entering their third year hosting this event.

“We take great pride in providing an experience that participants remember forever. Each and everyone who takes part in this adventure involve themselves in a festival atmosphere of fun. Adare to Survive can be used as a vehicle to generate much needed funds for various charities,” said Mr Nash.

“The course is tough! There is no point in lying about it – you will get wet, cold, tired, mucky and sore but you won’t be sorry,” he advised.

“Not only will you have a blast on the day but you will walk away with a great sense of achievement from surviving whatever we throw at you.”

Adare to Survive is a mash up of all the best elements of different kinds of events.  It’s more fun than a road race, it’s not just a mud run, it’s not as long as an adventure race and it’s as satisfying to complete as any of the above. So it’s tough, fun, challenging, and achievable with a great party atmosphere on the day.

Competitors are also welcome to enter in fancy dress.
