Current Gold Olympic, European and Commonwealth champion Alistair Brownlee, MBE, who is recognised as one of the worlds best triathletes will be the guest star at the first Sport 4 Life Sports Conference & Expo taking place in the Finn Valley Centre in Stranorlar, Co. Donegal from the 13th to 15th November 2015. 


Sport4Life is coordinated by Donegal County Council in association with Triathlon Ireland, the HSE, Athletics Ireland, Finn Valley Centre and BASICC.


One of the 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 and tips from all the top coaches in running, cycling and swimming.


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 and 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 Rememberence 10 km.
