Former all-Ireland champion Kathryn Casserly is collaborating with Castlegar Athletic’s Club to host a charity 5km road race in Claregalway,.
The event is being organised by Kathryn as a benefit for Self Help Africa, the Irish agency that supports rural African communities to grow more food. All proceeds that are raised from the €15 entrance fee will go to support their work.
Later this year, Kathryn will join close to 30 Self Help Africa supporters at this year’s Great Ethiopian Run, in a fund-raising 10km run that is being organised by Galway charity campaigner Ronan Scully.
Kathryn and her club mates at Castlegar Athletics Club have secured some great prizes, and there will be awards presented on the day to the top three finishing men and women, and to the first junior boy and junior girl over the finishing line.
The Claregalway 5km Road Race will take place from Claregalway Business Park at 1.30pm on Sunday 16 September. Registrations will be received at the Claregalway GAA Centre from 11.30am on the morning, and parking is being provided for athletes at the Claregalway Business Park Centre.
