A5 - RUN FOR A LIFE 2017_NPM-page-0

Welcome to the website for our annual Run For a Life.  This is the ninth year of the event and we are delighted to be back in Corkagh Park again! The event 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.

The parkland nature of the measured 2.5km circuit we use will make it very picturesque and should make for a good experience for runners, joggers and walkers alike. Hopefully we can have similar weather to the last two years!

As a result of ongoing feedback, 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 good 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.

Mark Murphy
Chief Executive
Irish Kidney Association

    I registered myself and my mam, unfortunately she has lost the registration email, is there anyway she can still run without the barcode tomorrow.


    • Hi Sinead,

      If your Mam’s name is Jane she is in the system and she just needs to give her name at registration and she will get her number and everything else that goes with being a participant in the event.
      See you tomorrow.
