Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown takes on the Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K once again!

The Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K returns for its 8th year in full force on the 8th October at 2pm. This has become a landmark event for the County with 1,200 people walking, jogging, or rolling the 5km scenic route around Kilbogget Park last year and numbers look set to rise again for 2016.

Taking place during the Counties ‘Festival of Inclusion’, this annual 5km event prides itself on being fully-inclusive, suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. With a DJ on hand to add to the electrifying atmosphere, each participant receives a t-shirt at sign-in and refreshments on crossing the finish line. Children taking part in the event will also each receive a medal. At just €5 for adults and free for children, this event will give everyone the opportunity to get out, have fun and be active.

The Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K is organised by dlr Sports Partnership and a range of local agencies who are delighted to once again have our local Credit Union as title sponsor. Funding support is also provided by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the HSE.

Shane McArdle, Coordinator with dlr Sports Partnership, commented ‘the popularity of this fantastic event can be easily measured by the increase in numbers every year from the 130 participants we had back in 2009. This is very much a community event; people want to return each year because of the fun and family atmosphere that is generated.’
