Join us on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a 5k/10k in the heart of Kilkenny city at 8pm.

Your €25 donation will play a big part in helping the Mark Pollock Trust to reach its €500,000 fundraising aim this year to fast-track a cure for paralysis, which will change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don't miss out!


This year’s pop-up run will again be championed by Cathy O'Connor


The 5km route starts from the Castle gate, down the canal walk back, into loop a section of the Medieval mile to the last mile down Kieran street.

The finish line takes you back to the Castle Gate.

Those wishing to complete 10km may loop around once more. The route will have signs and ushers to guide you along the scenic route. 

After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to reunite in The Left Bank to raise a glass to Mark Pollock and the Mark Pollock Trust efforts to fast-track a cure for paralysis.

Refreshments will be distributed to all participants at the finish line.

Registration will close at 6pm sharp on Tuesday 14th November.

Whether you are completing the 5km run or 10km run, please aim to arrive at 19.30 (7.30pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and buff and have a group photo before we go running!
