Headford 8k

This year’s race takes place on July 9th 2011 at 7PM in the town of Headford, Co. Galway. Now in it’s 7th year, this annual event goes from strength to strength and is very popular with the running community and very well received in Headford town.

Last year’s event attracted over 220 athletes despite a downpour on the evening, hopefully the weather will be better this year! All proceeds from the event go to Galway based charities providing services to children with Intellectual Disabilities. Monies raised are used to provide extra items such as play items for playgrounds, sensory equipment and musical instruments. The event has raised over €15,000 in the past few years.

Further information is available on the website www.headford8k.com and you can enter online www.runireland.com. Headford8k would like to thank all our sponsors, athletes who return year after year and our volunteers! Here’s hoping for another great race this year!

(This year’s event will have chip timing and we would be grateful if people could enter online to reduce the administration on the day of the race!)
