Leading global retailer, Chain Reaction Cycles and their NI charity partner Action Cancer have today announced an exciting adventure race called ‘RE:ACTION’

The event takes place on October 6th and will utilise the fabulous facilities at Clearsky Adventure Centre at Castle Ward (Northern Ireland), where participants can take on a run/cycle/run style challenge in aid of the Cancer Charity. Entries are now open for solo, duo and triplet entries with the challenging course weaving its way around the National Trust property in Co. Down. The three stage race will consist of a 4km run, 13km bike ride and final 4km run to the finish line.

Andrew Porter, Clearsky Adventure Race welcomes the event
‘We’re really looking forward to staging Re:Action in October. The course will utilise some of the best features of the marvellous castle Ward Estate here on the shores of Strangford Lough. With many other activities available on the site throughout the day they’ll be plenty for all the family and supporters to do.’

Commenting on the launch, Chain Reaction Cycles PR Manager Simon Cordner;
‘Having launched our partnership with Action Cancer in 2012 we’re delighted to unveil this new event. We hope we can raise lots of funds for the charity at RE:Action and that as many people as possible get behind the event as a challenge with work colleagues and friends. The course is set amongst the stunning purpose built parkland and loughshore mountain bike trails of Castle Ward Estate and so is suitable for everyone. We look forward to seeing you there!

Kerry Anderson, Corporate Fundraising Officer at Action Cancer continues,
“ The challenge event offers something for all abilities and the facilities at Castle Ward are excellent so it’s a great opportunity to try these out of you haven’t had the opportunity to do so before. We’re very grateful to Chain Reaction Cycles for organising the event as part of our partnership in relation to men’s health and in support of our Action Man Campaign. Action Cancer provides MOT health checks which provide men with a current picture of their health and advise them on health changes they wish to make. The health checks also provide an opportunity to raise awareness of male specific cancers, encouraging men to check themselves and go to the GP with symptoms. Anyone wishing to avail of a health check should call Action Cancer on 028 9080 3344.”

Entries for this exciting new event are £15 per person with a suggested sponsorship target of £75.
