Raheny AC run from Malin to Mizen this weekend...

This was something I meant to put up a while back but with all the local races, it kind of got forgotten about.

The Dublin based club Raheny AC are doing a sponsored charity run from Malin Head in Donegal to Mizen Head in Cork this weekend. They will have a relay of runners and hope to complete the distance in 65 hours. All proceed are going to the Childrens Hospital in Crumlin.

Details below...
If you would like to join us along the way to complete a marathon or just run a couple of miles please see below for details of the route with start and finish points of each marathon and main towns along the.

The purpose of the run is to raise funds for the Children’s hospital in Crumiln and donations will be welcome from anyone joining us and we would request a donation of at least €20 for anyone looking to complete a marathon in return for which you will get a commemorative medal and t-shirt.

If you can’t join us donations can be made online at Summary:
