Great Ireland Run 2019

THE GREAT IRELAND RUN, Ireland’s greatest 10km and 5km run in Phoenix Park, takes place on Sunday April 14th this year.

We’re looking for Great Ireland Runners to join our team for Mater Hospital patients. We’re trying to make a Life-saving difference to people in the Mater Hospital and we’d love you on our team!

If you join us, you’ll be running for hospital equipment like patient beds, syringe pumps for pain medication, patient monitors and ground breaking medical research. It’ll add so much to the day in Phoenix Park. You’ll be part of a mass celebration of running and life, helping Mater patients to overcome their own personal challenges in the hospital setting.

The Great Ireland Run is for runners of all abilities and ages. You can enter the 5km or 10km option. If you’re bringing your family, your children can also join with the Junior and Mini events for kids from 3 –  15 years old.

Choose the Mater Foundation as your charity for THE GREAT IRELAND RUN, and make an important and badly needed difference to Patient Care in the Mater Hospital.
