GOAL Miles will take place at two venues across County Wexford this year.

Now in its 34th year the Goal Mile provide people young and old with an opportunity to stretch their legs and help raise money and awareness for some of GOAL's work in the developing world.

More than 130 Miles will be held across the country over the coming days, confirming the ever-growing popularity of the event.

Miles will be held at two locations in Wexford this year: at Duncannon Beach on New Year's Day at 12.30pm; and at The Quay Front in Wexford Town on St Stephen's Day at 11am.

GOAL CEO, Barry Andrews, says the GOAL Mile is now an integral part of Christmas for thousands of families. 'Thanks to the magnificent support of the Irish public and the Irish sporting fraternity, the GOAL Mile has gone from strength to strength every year since its inception in 1982. To such an extent, it is now an integral part of Christmas for thousands of families across the country.

GOAL is hoping this year's Miles will help highlight the plight of people displaced from Syria, South Sudan and other conflict regions of the world.
