Countdown to race day!

VLM are delighted to announce our new event - African Run Ireland. This run will have two lengths - 5km and 10km - and will take place in the beautiful surroundings of St Catherine's Park in Lucan. This event will support the work of VLM across Africa, We are a small Irish charity that sends volunteers and fundraises for our partner projects in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya and Tanzania. With this in mind the Africa Run Ireland will have a theme of 'Fees not Tees'. Instead of receiving a race T-shirt a donation from every registration will be made towards the fees of a school place for a child in Tigray in Ethiopia. You can help us give children in this war-affected area the life-changing opportunity of an education. This is a new event but we hope to make it part of the annual Irish running calendar.
