LauraLynn is appealing to runners across Ireland to rally the troops and join us for this very special physical event. The Charity is aiming to get hundreds of runners to sign up for either the 5k or the Half Marathon.

Speaking to Run Ireland LauraLynn race organiser Gillian Neary commented: “We’re really excited about seeing people come out and make every kilometre count. I am really hoping to see lots of people from across the country to join us for one of our first physical events in two years. There will be a Half Marathon and a 5km route, not to mention a chance to run alongside Ray himself who will be taking part. There’s something for every runner and there’s still lots of time to train and get ready for this challenge no matter what level you are currently at.   Places are limited though, so I’m encouraging people to sign up now to avoid disappointment.”

Registration costs vary depending on which route you want to take (5km = €25 /Half Marathon = €45) and all participants are being asked to raise or donate €100 to LauraLynn.

Entry includes a special event t-shirt, race number and a bespoke D’Arcy’s LauraLynn Half Marathon & 5k Medal. Further details can be found on the LauraLynn Website and online registration can be submitted on the Registration Form.
