Trek 75 km in 3 days ...
Can you do it?
Event Dates: 9th-11th August 2013
The Pikeman Challenge is an action packed three day event based in the “sunny south-east”. From our base in Wexford town, you will hike over 75 kilometres of mixed terrain of beautiful Wexford countryside.
Now in it's 6th year, the Pikeman Challenge has grown as an event and the previous 5 years proved to be a major success and very enjoyable for all participants.
This superbly organised event is a “ready-made vehicle” enabling participants to:
- raise money for the charity/ organisation of their choice
- get fit
- meet and trek with sporting legends & famous faces
- enjoy a fun filled weekend in the “sunny south-east”
- raise money for much needed sports facilities in Wexford
- explore one of the most important times in Ireland’s past
The Faythe Harriers Hurling & Camógie club has designed this initiative as a way to facilitate fundraising both within our club and for other clubs, charities and societies.
The theme of the challenge is to follow in the footsteps of Wexford’s 1798 Rebel Pikemen. Over the weekend accompanying guides will outline the historical elements of the route. While trekking, you will be afforded the opportunity of meeting participating celebrity walk leaders, famous faces and sporting legends.
Attracting young people to sport is a primary objective of the Faythe Harriers. Proper facilities are required to promote enjoyment and encourage participation across all the underage groups.
This fundraising initiative will help provide the Faythe Harriers Hurling & Camógie Club with new, state of the art, playing facilities for the youth of Wexford town while giving other organisations and individuals the opportunity to raise money for their club or chosen charity.
