Christmas Tractor Run and walk for Slieve Bloom national school

Christmas Tractor Run and walk for Slieve Bloom national school

A fun and festive rural day is on offer in Laois at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains over the Christmas holidays.

The Annual Tractor Run and Fun Run/Walk held by Clonenagh National School will take place in Coolrain on Tuesday December 28.

Always a great family day out, the school has announced its excitement that their fundraiser is returning this year after a break in 2020 due to Covid restrictions. The traditional monster auction however will have to wait until next year.

The day starts with a 6 km Family Fun Run/Walk around the beautiful countryside near Coolrain village at the foot of the Slieve Bloom mountains. A great way to work off the excesses of Christmas for all ages.

Registration for the Run/Walk will take place at 11am outside Sheeran’s Pub, Coolrain. It costs €10 for Adults, €5 for 13-18 year olds, free for under-12s. The Run starts at 11.30am.

Next up will be the Annual Tractor Run, a sight to behold as the tractors work their way through the village and along the route.

Registration for the Tractor Run (€20 per tractor) takes place at 1pm outside Sheeran’s Pub, and the tractors will set off at 2pm. All the drivers will be given a memento to remember the day. Refreshments will also be provided.

Everyone is welcomed to come along and join the local community for some exercise, some tractors and lots of fun.
