Run For a Life 2016
Saturday May 28th 2016 12.00pm
Run For a Life is over for another year – 533 people registered for this year’s event – a record. A big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our event and we hope to see you all next year!
Welcome to the website for our annual Run For a Life. This is the eighth 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.
After the success of last year’s event, we will be in Corkagh Park in Clondalkin, Dublin 22 again and we will be using the same 2.5km route. 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. Hopefully we can have similar weather!
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 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
