Join us in Madrid on Wednesday 15th November, 2017 for a 5k/10k run 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 Madrid run will again be championed by Emma Naismith and Lisa Fitzgerald.

The Route:

The start and finish line will be located at the main entrance to the Retiro Park (Puerta de Alcalá) and the run will do a full loop of the inside of the park.  The 5km run will  finish after one lap while the hardy 10km runners will loop around a second time.

After the race has finished all runners are encouraged to meet up in the James Joyce Irish pub (Alcalá 59)  for a catch-up and to raise a toast to Mark.
