Bridge to Bridge is the big Cohuna this weekend

By Brayden May

THE COHUNA Bridge to Bridge is back for another year.

This year's event, set to be held on March 1, will offer seven different race types to help keep the entire family happy.

The available events include a half-marathon through the Gunbower Forest, while the 12.5km run will also take place through the same location.

There will also be a 6.5km fun run/walk, mini miler for the juniors, 6.5km junior cycle, 25km cycle and 50km cycle.

All money raised from the event will be donated to the Cohuna District Hospital, so an endoscopy camera can be purchased.

Last year's funding saw two specialised chairs for patients in the dialysis and infusion day clinic purchased.
