Castleknock College Union

Castleknock 5k Run

Jun 16, 2019
Castleknock 5k Run -

The Union is proud to again support the Castleknock5k. Last year saw the launch of the Rory Doherty Perpetual Trophy for the first Pastman across the line. It was won by John Coughlan. Who will get their name on it this year?

The run takes place on Sunday, June 16th at 10am this year.

The event was initially set up in memory of our fellow pastman Rory Doherty (Class of 1999) who sadly passed away in 2013. This year all monies raised will go towards the Stroke Unit in Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown.

The race has been run since 2014 and is run on closed roads, starting and finishing in the college and the route takes you through the Phoenix Park and Farmleigh Estate. The event has raised just shy of €100,000 for various charities in the 5 years to date.

It’s a fantastic event with fun for all the family whether competing or spectating with face painting, bouncing castles and the all-important Ice Cream van for both athletes and kids.

Not to mention a wonderful opportunity to meet up with classmates of all years and their families in a relaxed environment and the picturesque setting of the College.
