July 25th, 2012 Timberland® and Munster Rugby are delighted to announce the Timberland® & Munster Rugby ’Kerry Way Challenge’ in aid of CARI taking place on Sunday August 26th. The Challenge was launched today with a photo shoot of Munster rugby players Donncha O’ Callaghan, Denis Hurley and James Coughlan.
Teams from Timberland® and Munster Rugby will put their levels of endurance to the test by attempting to undertake the 13.1 trail run which follows the final stage of the Kerry Way. The spectacular hiking route meanders around the Iveragh Peninsula from Kenmare finishing in Killarney national park.
Timberland® have agreed to augment fundraising targets for the challenge through shopping events in Timberland® stores in Cork, Limerick, Dublin (Dundrum, Liffey Valley and South Anne Street) and Belfast on August 24th/25th when a percentage from daily turnover will be donated to CARI. Munster Rugby will be undertaking other fund raising activities in the lead up to the challenge on August 26th.
