In the region of 650 on this occassion indicating the continuing attractivenesss of such an event . In its 3rd year it has shown an increase in numbers of walkers /runners /joggers year on year . Starting in the picturesque village and heading into the Isle Of Doagh skirting the sea as it winds its way with Malin in the background though on this day the misty rain didnt enhance the view .
