Welcome to the website for our annual Run For a Life. This is the sixth year of the event which was initiated by Astellas Pharma who have continued on as the sponsors for the event. We are delighted that it has developed a loyal following over the years and it has become a strong platform for the promotion of organ donor awareness and raising funds for the Irish Kidney Association as well as a great day out for all the family.
This year we are moving the event to Corkagh Park in Clondalkin, Dublin 22. The parkland nature of the measured 2.5km circuit will make it very picturesque and should make for a good experience for runners, joggers and walkers alike.
As a result of feedback from last year’s event, we will again be offering a choice of 2.5km, 5km or 10km events. A combination of an accurately measured course and chip timing will mean that it will be a good event for regular runners to record a time over the popular distances of 5km and 10km. Having the 2.5km options makes the day accessible to all ages and abilities thus making it very family friendly.
As in past years, our renowned soup and sandwiches will of course be available to all finishers!
I look forward to seeing you on the day.
Irish Kidney Association
