The Clongowes 5k fun run is back for 2022

Once again the track surface includes tarmac, forest track and grass surfaces and brings athletes through the beautiful grounds of the Boarding School which is over 200 years old.


The Clongowes 5km run is part of a Transition Year Project called ‘ The Duck Push ‘ which raises funds for medical equipment for Crumlin Children’s Hospital. The project is in its 28th year and has raised over €2m for medical equipment during that time.


All proceeds from the Clongowes 5kmrun  go towards the purchase of equipment for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin.


Ample car parking on site with toilet facilities available.
