“Virtual” Festival of Running

Missing out on the Women’s Mini Marathon this year? This is the perfect event for you!

We have all come through some tough months and the future is getting brighter but we still need to be mindful of our health and the health of the vulnerable so we are taking our Festival of running VIRTUAL

The Virtual Festival of Running will now take place throughout the month of July. You choose how far and where you run.

All we ask is a fundraising target of €100 to be raised for Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services. Set up your fundraising page on www.justgiving.com. We will also send you out a sponsorship card with your running calendar for the month of July.

You will be able to post your times online using the button below:
