Get the New Year off to a healthy start and help two great charities in the process.
Calling all runners, joggers, walkers and everyone in between. On Sunday 26 January 2020, The Charlie Curran Memorial Run takes place in Carlow town in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and Brain Tumour Ireland.
This chip timed event is open to those serious about their running and everyone (of all running or walking abilities) who would like to get behind this worthwhile charity event.
Starting at Carlow Town Hurling Club, Oak Park, Carlow you can complete the 5 Mile route or the Kids Dash, an event especially for younger runners (400 meters approx.).
The run is being organised by Charlie Curran in memory of his dad Charlie Curran (Senior) who passed away at the age 52 having suffered a heart attack. Charlie’s chosen charities will resonate with many who have availed of the services of either charity be it directly or indirectly.
