Whether you’re a seasoned marathon addict or a couch to 5K novice, taking on an active challenge for a charitable cause is one of the most rewarding things you can do.

Not only is there the physical challenge, there’s also the motivation of doing so to make a difference in people’s lives. Every year hundreds of people take on active challenges around the world in order to benefit Marymount and allow us to continue to provide the level of care we do to those most in need.

They cover a range of distances, from 5K fun runs to Iron Man triathlons. There are first timers and fitness fanatics via all points in between. But they’re all driven by a single goal, to support Marymount.

The next upcoming active challenge is: The Marymount Rebel Way Challenge

Marymount’s Rebel Way challenge takes runners, walkers and cyclists on a virtual journey through the Beara Way – one of Cork’s most scenic walks. You can sign up to complete the 100km trail from stunning Glengarrif to the wilds of Dursey Island – all from your local area. 

Participants can log their daily kilometres within their local 5km radius but virtually can reach stunning Cork landmarks along the way on an interactive map, including Dursey Island, Castletownbere. Participants will get emails along the way celebrating their arrival at virtual destination.

Challenge yourself to keep up your activity levels both for your own physical and mental health and to support Marymount’s services.

Marymount has had to cancel all of its traditional fundraising events in 2020 and 2021, while still needing to raise €3.5million each year to sustain it’s current services. The Marymount Rebel Way walking challenge will help support Marymount’s services in 2021.
