Spearline have been announced as the official headline sponsor of the annual Skibbereen Charity Adventure Race (SCAR). The popular multi-discipline adventure race takes place in and around the breathtaking beauty and rugged environs of Skibbereen, Castletownshend, Lough Hyne and the wild Atlantic coastline which define this picturesque and tranquil part of West Cork.

SCAR '15 which is due to be held on Saturday, October 17th, is a multi-sport adventure race made up of road biking, trail running and sea kayaking. This event is a strictly not for profit event. All race entry fees will be donated entirely to local charities. The two main charities benefiting this year are Helpful Steps and Friends of Jamie Wall. Several other local charities will benefit through the continued generosity of the Skibbereen and District Lions Club.

A challenging but ultimately fulfilling course awaits the 650 contestants expected to complete this gruelling but exciting challenge. There are three different levels available to contestants on the day. They are aimed towards beginners, intermediates and expert contestants who will be tested and pushed to complete this well organised and truly memorable course.



Spearline are delighted to join forces with this successful adventure race which attracts contestants from all over Ireland and indeed attracts visitors from the UK. It reinforces Spearline continued investment and indeed commitment to local charities within the confines of their local community. Spearline are also pleased to be proactive in promoting sport and fun for people of all ages in their local hinterland. It promises to be a truly spectacular sporting event with Spearline delighted to be a part of this local success story.
