Women’s Aid – Purple Run 5K

Sandymount Strand, Tuesday 25th September 2018

Walk, Jog, Run the Women's Aid 5K Purple Run.

Have a great night as you walk, jog or run the Women's Aid 5K Purple Run to help women affected by domestic violence.

The 5K event starts in Seán Moore Park just outside Clanna Gael Fontenoy GAA clubhouse (where registration takes place). The route follows the perimeter of the park around in an anti-clockwise direction on the tarmac park path. Just before 1km the route leaves the park and hits the beach. The route follows the beach before ascending Sandymount promenade. It follows the promenade to the end before descending again to the beach just 100m short of the turn point. The route rounds the turn and heads for home following the beach all the way back to the Seán Moore park. Upon re-entering the park, it's a right turn clockwise for the last couple of hundred metres and the welcome sight of the finish gantry where the race started. This route will be timed, marked and marshalled.

Number and T-shirt pick up:

  • 5pm to 7.30pm Monday 24th September at Women's Aid, 5 Wilton Place, Dublin 2.
  • 5pm to 7pm, Tuesday 25th September at Clanna Gael Fontenoy, Ringsend, Dublin 4.

Prizes: While this is very much a fun event raising much needed funds for their work, Women's Aid hope to have a number of small prizes as well as raffle prizes.

Dalymount Park

TU Dublin, Bohemian FC and Dublin Business School are delighted to present a rare opportunity to see George Best finally play Dalymount Park in a competitive fixture (Best lined out on the Phibsboro park in a benefit match in August 1968).
