Headford 8k Road Race


Popular Charity Road Race now in it’s 9th year! Each year in July the town of Headford plays host to the Headford 8k Charity Road Race. Now in its 9th year the race continues to grow in popularity and last year over 300 participants from all over the country took part. All the proceeds from the race go to local charities supporting children with Intellectual Disabilities. The race has raised over €25,000 since it started and provides valuable additional funds to support children with disabilities in their own communities providing short breaks, respite and in-home supports.

This year’s race takes place on Saturday 6th July at 7PM in the town of Headford. Technical t-shirts for all finishers. Walkers are welcome. Refreshments after the race and lots of spot prizes! More race prizes this year across many categories – Male & Female Junior, Senior, Vet 40, Vet 50 and Vet 60 – see website for full details.

You can find more information on www.headford8k.com and online entry is available now on www.runireland.com. Please do register online but registration will be available on the evening from 5.30PM.

Come on out for a great run and support this worthy cause!
