Silvermines GAA to host St. Stephen’s Day Run for Pieta House

Silvermines GAA in association with NJ Fitness are hosting a St. Stephen’s Day Run to raise funds for the Running for Josie/Pieta House fundraising campaign.

What better way to burn off the excesses of Christmas than to take to the roads around the picturesque parish of the Silvermines with two separate routes to choose from.

The 5km run will take participants from Dolla GAA Grounds towards the village of the Silvermines, turning at the Marian Grotto and back to Dolla while the 10km route will see participants also depart Dolla GAA Grounds for the Silvermines village but take a more circuitous route back via Kilmore Graveyard.

A 1km walk/run will also take place on the track for those who would like to participate on the day but do not wish to take part in 5k or 10k. 

Registration will take place at 10am and the run will start at 10.30am and participants can register on the morning or register online via the Silvermines GAA website and the Clubify App. Entry fee is €10 per person with a reduced rate for families taking part.

A huge turnout is expected for what promised to be a fantastic run all in aid of a very worthy cause and will hopefully go a long way towards assisting Seamus Hennessy in his quest to raise €200,00 for Pieta House via the Running for Josie campaign.
