The Semi State company Coillte who have been involved with the race from day one is again the main sponsor of the event. Where would the physical/mental health of the country be today without the Companies open forest policy allowing millions of people to use its vast areas of forests around the country to grab a bit of fresh air and exercise and especially during the recent Covid lockdown when there was nowhere else to go. Dundrum of course has a huge tradition of forestry with many kilometres of forest trails developed by Coillte over the years attracting thousands of people to the area every year boasting the economy of the local businesses. Dundrum Athletic Club are again grateful for the companies continued sponsorship of the healthy sport of running.
