Take on a Challenge

Have you ever dreamed of running a marathon, or even a half-marathon? Is there cycle you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t gotten around to yet?

Taking on a physical (and mental!) challenge is a wonderful way to support the Mater Foundation while having some fun. There are lots of events organised throughout the year that you can sign up to – and we’re here to help you in your fundraising!

HELL & BACK, 9 & 10 September 2017, Dublin

HELL & BACK, Ireland’s toughest mental & physical endurance challenge, is the country’s largest and most popular obstacle course run. To survive, you must conquer all the elements thrown at you, whether that is the temperamental weather conditions, the gruelling natural environment or the torturous man-made obstacles.

Berlin Marathon, 24 September 2017, Berlin

The Berlin Marathon is one of the most popular road races in the world, and regularly attracts up to 40,000 people from over 100 countries. It is a wonderful opportunity to run a spectacular course and spend time in one of Europe’s most lively and pulsing cities.

Dublin Marathon, 29 October 2017, Dublin

Known internationally for the warm welcome offered by the watching public, this year’s event is expected to attract 15,000 people. Now in its 38th year, the marathon will take place on a Sunday again, after 2016’s success.
