ALL runners, walkers and joggers are reminded that registration for the 'Double the Fun 5K Run' on Saturday September 7 will take place on Thursday September 5 at 8pm and Saturday September 7 from 10.45am.
The event, which will take place from St Patricks GFC in Lordship is encouraging participants to run in pairs - starting and finishing together.
Any combination is welcome, such as husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend, brother/sister, parent/child, friends - basically whatever you decide.
This provides a great opportunity for experienced runners to help guide a novice through a 5k run, perhaps for the first time, but those who wish to run as individuals are welcome to do so.
The event is being organised by St Patricks GFC and Ravensdale Sports Field committee to raise funds for juvenile sport in the area. The event starts at noon.
Entry is €20 for two participants, or €15 for an individual. If you register as pair, you must stay as a pair.
Chairman of St Patrick's GFC, Alan Duffy, explained that the event is being organised as part of a family fun day for the club.
'There is a huge amount of interest in running at the moment but we wanted to do something a little bit different and ensure there was a large fun element to it', he added.
