Third Age 5km Run



Back by popular demand the Third Age 5k Run is back to Malahide Castle on Saturday 22nd September 2012. Registration from 10am, race start at 11am.

 This year we have special additional categories: Prizes for Teams with 3 family  generations.  There’s a special ‘Golden Cone’ award- anyone can be the recipient for doing something memorable on the day – and there are spot prizes throughout the event.

 Finally, spot prizes too for fancy dress…… families and children welcome!

Did you know that 2012 is the European Year of Older People and Solidarity Between Generations so as part of making a difference for older people in 2012 register today.


All money raised goes to Senior Helpline the national phone help line for older people provided by trained older volunteers Callers really value talking to someone their own age, and over ten thousand older people phoned last year.

Many older people live alone with noone to talk to – it doesn’t have to be like this.  As a nation we are not uncaring yet older members of the community can be left alone and isolated in their own homes. Today Senior Helpline needs your help more than ever. LoCall 1850 440 444


Please join Dr Eva Orsmond from Operation Transformation to run, jog or walk for Senior Help Line, a Third Age programme

 Every €10 raised allows a volunteer to spend 20 minutes with another older person who just needs someone to talk to and to listen.
