The Galway Kenya Run takes place on September 14 and is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see arguably the world's most impressive athlete in action first-hand.
Members of the public can test themselves against David Rudisha's time, over a distance of 800m, while he is in Ireland to compete in a series of charity events in NUI Galway.
Rudisha is the Olympic champion and world-record holder over 800m and has run three of the top six fastest 800m times ever.
Joining Rudisha on his visit to Galway is legendary Irish athletics coach, Cork-born Brother Colm O'Connell, who will accompany the Kenyan for a programme of events taking place in the City of the Tribes.
O'Connell first travelled to the Rift Valley in Kenya almost 30 years ago, and is now commonly known as "the Godfather of Kenyan running" for his impressive feats in the athletics world, having coached 28 world champions and five Olympic champions over the course of his career.
Rudisha and O'Connell will visit local schools, as well as attend the Galway Kenya Run. Sponsored by the North Pole Marathon, the run is in aid of Self Help Africa, a charity that promotes and implements long-term rural development projects in Africa, and the Simon Community, an organisation tackling homelessness in Ireland, as well as O'Connell's own Education for Life charity in Kenya.
Seb Coe was famously quoted after the London Olympic Games last year, saying: "Bolt was good, Rudisha was magnificent. That is quite a big call, but it was the most extraordinary piece of running I have probably ever seen".
Evidently, this is an opportunity to see one of the greatest athletes the world has seen, in a rare appearance on Irish soil, while also being in aid of three great causes.
The event kicks off in Dangan at 1pm on Saturday, with 800m runs for members of the public willing to test themselves against the world's greatest every 10 minutes.
Rudisha's celebrity 800m run kicks off at 4pm, with the Elite Galway City Mile scheduled to start at 4.20pm. Following the completion of the races, Rudisha and O'Connell will take part in a charity question and answer session at Bailey Allen Hall in NUI Galway, with tickets for this event available for as little as €10.
The Q&A session is targeted at those interested in looking to better themselves in an individual and team sporting capacity, as well as in business and life.
