The 5th Annual Galway Night Run in aid of Croí, the Heart & Stroke Charity, will take place on Friday, October 11 at 8pm on the Salthill Prom. This year promises to be even bigger and better to celebrate the 5th anniversary, with music and entertainment at the start and finish line.
This is one of Croí’s biggest annual fundraising events, and thanks to the support of sponsor Evergreen Healthfoods and media partner iRadio, 100% of the proceeds go directly to supporting Croí services and supports in the community. This includes heart and stroke prevention and recovery programmes, education and training programmes, and supporting the Courtyard Apartments at Croí House which offer free accommodation and support for the relatives of those receiving heart or stroke care at Galway University Hospitals.
All abilities (competitive runners, family walkers, beginner joggers, etc.) and ages are welcome, and this year participants will be corralled at the start line based on predicted finish times to allow for a smoother flow. Bring the family and run, walk or jog the 5km in support of Croí. The run will be chipped timed and everyone will receive a medal!
“This is our 5th year on the Prom and we want to make it even more special for our participants. Expect a lively and music-filled start line this year, and we’ve designed a special 5th anniversary sleeved running top for registrations. Each entry makes a huge impact to the work here at Croí, and the run allows us to continue our community work in heart and stroke prevention,” says Christine Flanagan, Director of Fundraising at Croí.
Regular entry is €35, with discounted entry for students, youth and over 65s. Under 12s are welcome for free, but strictly must be under the supervision of an adult. Registration is open at www.croi.ie/nightrun. Join us and help Croí continue to lead the fight against heart disease and stroke in the West of Ireland.
