Saturday 12th February 2022

Colm’s family, friends, colleagues and community are still struggling to comprehend the shocking events of Wednesday June 17th, 2020, when Colm was cut down in the prime of his life, doing the job he loved, in the best way he knew how. He touched the lives of many in the communities of Charlestown and beyond, with dignity and regalness characterising his every action and deed.
His quality and sheer class will forever remain intact as his kindness, modesty and heroism will stay etched in our memories and consciousness for many a long day.

After the success of last years virtual run, East Mayo AC together with Charlestown Sarsfields GAA are looking forward to welcoming you all to Charlestown for a race on the 12th of February 2022 where you will receive a custom-made medal in memory of Colm. Custom designed t-shirts are also available to purchase with a choice of either a technical fit or cotton option. This year we’ve also added a hoodie as an optional extra with an embroidered crest. Please see T-shirt and Hoodie size and fit guides below.


We are also offering a virtual option where you can run, walk, treadmill or cycle your chosen distance and can take part anywhere in the world at you own pace over the same weekend. – Please note postage will only be available with Ireland this year, so please provide an address of a family or friend that could forward your package on to you.

Monies raised will go towards the development of the new ‘All-Weather floodlit pitch’ at Charlestown GAA to be named the ’Colm Horkan Memorial Pitch’ and community walkways and will be a fitting legacy for the great man and a facility for the community to enjoy for generations to come.


We are extremely grateful to the ‘Big Red Barn’ for so generously coming onboard as main sponsors of our event. Check them out on www.bigredbarn.ie

NB This event will be organised in adherence with all Government and Health guidelines. Should restrictions re number of participants be implemented before the race, we will limit numbers accordingly and contact those that registered first to take part in the physical race and all other entries will be transferred to virtual participants.
