The 5th annual Run Kildare Event takes place on Sunday April 27, 2014 at The Curragh Racecourse.
Whether you walk, jog or run the Lidl Run Kildare Curragh 10K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon every participant is welcome on the day.
Each course takes in the flat, beautiful and historic Curragh landscape and there is a family fun day at the racetrack throughout the day.
“Be a part of the buzz” said a spokesperson for the event.
“Runners, joggers and walkers will see and experience some of the most beautiful parts of County Kildare. The Lidl Run Kildare Event not only brings you three great races in a great location but also provides you, your family and friends both young and old, with The Family Fun Festival. Music, a variety of stalls and children’s entertainment will be available all day to create a great atmosphere and will keep all spectators entertained.”
The event supports three nominated charities: The Marie Keating Foundation, Special Olympics and Saint Vincent de Paul.
“If you wish to run for your own charity - then please feel free to do so,” she added.
“Our mission statement is to provide professional, memorable running events for both elite and recreational runners, to offer inspiration for young Irish athletes and build continuous support for our chosen charities and local community groups.
“To make sure we keep to our word we shall support our charities by providing complimentary entries, a donation to each and ongoing marketing support.
“In addition to our charity and local community support, we have set up a fund with the Kildare County Board Athletics Association to develop young Kildare athletes so they can reach their true potential through coaching and development.” Log on to www.kildaremarathon.ie
