Cyclists are being invited to saddle up for the annual Fun Run of the Glens (F.R.O.G) charity cycle which will follow a range of routes throughout the scenic Glens of Antrim on Saturday 14th June.

Now in its 9th year, organisers hope to attract a record number of cyclists which will in turn help them smash the £100,000 barrier for the total amount raised for local charities. This year’s cycle will support the work of both Cancer focus Northern Ireland and the Simon Community.

The event is specifically designed to suit cyclists of all abilities and is organised across four routes throughout the Glens of Antrim ranging from a leisurely 25miles to a more serious 100 mile trip.  All participants who raise a minimum amount for the charities will also receive a special commemorative cycle top.

Speaking about Cancer Focus Northern Ireland's involvement,  Community Fundraising Officer Suzi McIlwain said: “Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is absolutely delighted to be involved in F.R.O.G for a third year. This cycling challenge grows in success every year and we’re sure that by teaming up with both Fujitsu and the Simon Community that this year’s FROG will be the biggest and the best yet."

Further details about the event and how to get involved can be found on the F.R.O.G facebook page www.facebook.com/FROGRun.
