Clongowes inaugural 5km Fun Run will be held at Clongowes Wood College Grounds on Saturday 23rd March at 11.30am.


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 fun 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 26th year and has raised over €2m for medical equipment during that time. 


All proceeds from the Fun Run go towards the purchase of equipment for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. 


Ample car parking on site with toilet facilities available.
