Preparations under way for Gorey Night Run

The nimble and indeed not so nimble footed are pounding the paths of Gorey this month as they prepare for the Gorey Night Run.

The run which is in its second year is a fundraiser for the North Wexford Hospice and takes place this year on Thursday, March 2. The runners and walkers will set off for a 5km timed run around Gorey leaving the Civic Square at 8pm on March 2.

Last year the run saw €9,500 being raised for the hospice.

Traffic disruption will be kept to a minimum. The route will be stewarded. Participants can run, jog, or walk. The event is timed but not chipped.

To register log onto or turn up on the night. Entry is €15, or €5 for children. T-shirts will be given to those who register online. All proceeds go to North Wexford Hospice Homecare, as Gorey Credit Union, Innovate, and Redmond Hotels are sponsoring the event. Refreshments and music afterwards.
