Calcutta Run 2020

Type of Event : Running or marathons
Where : Dublin, Co. Dublin
When : 24th October 2020
Description :

We are calling runners of all levels, family, kids, and friends to kick off the summer by participating in Calcutta Run 2020, a 5Km or 10Km Fun Run/Walk on Saturday 24 October at Blackhall Place, Dublin.

Calcutta Run was founded in January 1999 with the aim of bringing the legal profession together to create an annual fundraising event to fight homelessness in Ireland and in Calcutta. Since then, a staggering €4.3 million has been raised, helping countless young people experiencing homelessness both at home and abroad through the Peter McVerry Trust and The Hope Foundation

Spurred by the success of the inaugural run in 1999, the event has grown from strength to strength. Over 1,500 people took part in 2019, raising an incredible €300,000. With extra effort from all the firms and individuals involved we think we can raise this amount again in 2020! 

Bring the whole office, your family, your friends, and even your dog along to enjoy the scenic route through the Phoenix Park. Registration will take place from 9:15am to 10:15am. As a reward for all the hard work, runners and walkers will receive a goodie bag and can then relax and enjoy the BBQ, bar, DJ and kids activities at the Finish Line Festival in the grounds of Blackhall Place.
