8th Annual Charlie Curran Memorial Run 2022
Calling all runners, joggers, walkers and everyone in between. January 2022 will see the return of the sell-out Charlie Curran Memorial Run. Due to current high case levels and to fully protect our volunteers, families and our race partners and associated clubs we will once again go Virtual for our annual event.
The event was set up in 2015 in memory of my father Charlie Curran who passed in 2015 due to a heart attack. We have raised just over €50,000 in total over the past 7 years for multiple Irish charities and this year we would like to grow that total with your help and support
What’s a virtual event I hear you ask, a virtual event allows you the freedom to choose your own distance, and your way to complete your challenge and the freedom to do so be it running, walking jogging, cycling or on a treadmill. Your exercise can be done in the beautiful scenic locations in your county or another location throughout Ireland or even a different country. Last year we had people complete their challenge in America, Australia, Spain and England to name but a few. Complete you activity from January 1st 2022. Our official race day would have been 30 January 2021 and we will complete our challenge on that day. Medals and t-shirts will be posted out to you in advance of the 30th of January 2022. No Restrictions exist you can complete when you want or are able to in 2022.
This year like previous years in the past we have chosen another worthy charity to benefit from your support and all proceeds from this event will go direct to Éist Cancer Support Centre Carlow.
Éist makes a huge impact on the families and the individuals that avail of their services, here’s a little of information on how your support will assist in their vital work.
