ORGANISERS of Ireland’s Biggest Beach Workout are hoping to smash last year’s attendance of 220, while at the same time raise much-needed funds for Down Syndrome Cork.
And the organisers are putting a call-out for both young and old to join them on the spectacular Inchydoney beach on Sunday morning August 19th for a workout that will be suitable for all fitness levels.
Now in its second year, the workout saw over 220 people go through a 45-minute workout last time around, led by organiser and fitness instructor Colin Murphy of Properly Built.
‘It was a big success last year and we’re hoping to get over 300 people to take part in what is a great family event,’ Colin told The Southern Star.
‘We will have DJ Paul Cullen there who will warm up the crowd and build up the music.’
The first 200 people attending will also receive a goodie bag containing items from a number of local companies including Rosscarbery Recipes, Clonakilty Blackpudding, Irish Yogurts and Kinetica. The Inchydoney Lodge & Spa will also sponsor bottles of water.
‘It should be good fun for everyone on a Sunday morning in picturesque West Cork. Also, no equipment is needed as we will be using our bodyweight and the sand as resistance,’ added Colin.
The cost for adults and those over 16 is €10 and children are free. Payment can be made on the morning of the workout.
Participants are being asked to arrive early at Inchydoney beach and be on time for the workout which takes place from 10am to 10:45am.
