As Ballybofey/Stranorlar has now been designated at a Sports Hub for the County this event will be coordinated by Donegal County Council in association with Triathlon Ireland, Athletics Ireland, the HSE, Finn Valley Centre and BASICC.

One of the few, but important, benefits arising out of the recession was the huge increase in people taking up some form of physical activity, many people all over the country became socially active whether it was walking, running, cycling or swimming and a lot of these people are now competing in competitions.   The conference will cover topics such as Health and Wellbeing, Nutrition, Physical Health – Care of Joints, Mental Health, Motivation as well as break-out rotational sessions on running, cycling, swimming with head coaches from Triathlon and Athletics Ireland also dealing with moving to competitive.

There will also be an Expo with stands advertising the many products, gear and foods now available to athletes.   This Expo will be open all weekend to both the general public and to those attending Sport 4 Life.  A gala dinner will take place on the Saturday night followed by an ‘Ask the Experts’ style forum where you can pose your questions directly to our many sporting special guests.

The weekend will draw to a close on Sunday with a fun Aquaton event, run by Triathlon Ireland – this will incorporate swimming and running or just running for those not interested in the swim.  There will also be the concluding event of Triathlon Ireland’s ‘Try a Tri’ Women’s Course and the Finn Valley Remembrance 10 km.  Refreshments and conference close will follow.

 

‘Health’ will be one of the major focus points over the weekend in terms of the Health Promotional aspect to ‘Sport 4 Life’ and the benefits to people.  This will provide an ideal platform for businesses to be associated with an event that brings practitioners from the field of sport and health sharing their knowledge and experiences in a positive manner to the public.  There will also be space available for health/wellbeing services to exhibit their information over the weekend.
