The Grant Thornton Corporate 5K Team Challenge series is back again this year with races in Galway, Cork, Belfast and Dublin. This year’s series kicked off in the famous Ballybrit Racecourse in Galway earlier this month. Up next is Cork city which will take place on Wednesday 13 June, followed by Belfast City Airport on Thursday 21 June. The final race will take place on Wednesday 5 September in Dublin Docklands.
Enter as part of a company team of four with three categories available; male, female and mixed. 5K is a great distance for beginners and experienced runners alike, so there is no excuse for you and your colleague to give it a try! Team prizes in each category and all participants will receive a goodie bag, technical t-shirt and medal.
In addition, 10% of each entry fee will go to the Simon Community. The Simon Communities have been providing services in Ireland for almost 50 years. The Simon Communities deliver support and service to over 11,000 people and families throughout Ireland who experience – or are at risk of – homelessness every year. Whatever the issue, for as long as we are needed, Simon’s door is always open.
