Easter fun runPictured promoting the 4th annual Good Run in aid of Motor Neurone Disease were Catherina McKiernan, former European Cross-Country Champion and World Cross Country medalist, Jim Connolly (Goodbody, event sponsor) and Aisling Farrell (CEO, IMNDA)

Calling all runners, joggers, walkers and families– the 4th annual Good Run is back this Good Friday 30th March, to get the Easter weekend off to a healthy start.

The charity fun run will be returning to the stunning grounds of St Anne’s Park, Raheny on Friday 30th March. The exciting event offers a choice of two distances, 2.5km and 5km, for runners and walkers of all abilities and promises a great family morning out.

Proceeds will go towards supporting the fight against motor neurone disease (MND), a progressive neurological condition that attacks the motor neurones or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord affecting how you walk, talk, eat and breathe. All proceeds from the event will be divided equally and donated to the IMNDA and Project MinE, an international research programme dedicated to discovering the genetic cause of MND to enable treatment to be developed. The Good Run has seen over 2,500 participants
and raised over €51,000 since the inaugural event in 2015. Organisers are expecting big numbers this Easter weekend so register early!

Online registration is now open at Entry donations are €15 for individuals and €30 for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children).
