Rith 2012 – Day 9 / Lá 9


On March 9th 2010, a marathon run began around the island of Ireland, passing the specially designed baton to a different runner/group at the end of each kilometre. Over 20,000 people ran to support the Irish language, on a cross-country route through cities, towns and villages between Belfast and Galway.

Now, Rith is coming back, with a brand new course set out for 2012, starting 8th March 2012 and running from Gaoth Dobhair (Gweedore) to Inis Mor, Aran Islands. The run will last for ten days, with tens of thousands of people taking part in every corner of the country. Rith 2012 will visit Counties Donegal, Tyrone, Derry, Antrim, Armagh, Monaghan, Meath, Dublin, Kildare, Carlow, Laois, Tiperary, Limerick, Clare, Galway and the Aran Islands.

Come out and join in the run! Join in the craic and fun! Be part of Rith!
