Posted by & filed under News.

Want to take part in a fun active event for all the family? If so register now for the Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K, taking place at 2pm on Saturday 5th October 2019. This event returns for its 11th year in full force with over a thousand participants walking, jogging or rolling the 5km scenic route around Kilbogget Park.

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 festive atmosphere, each participant receives an event t-shirt at sign-in and a medal for children on crossing the finish line. This year we will again have lots of fun activities for all the family from 1pm that will include a chance to try a range of sports and activities.

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 and clubs 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. The Community Gardai and Dublin Civil Defence also assist to ensure a safe and fun event.

Shane McArdle, Coordinator with dlr Sports Partnership, commented “We’ve expanded the event this year to include fun family activities at 1pm prior to the 5k start time at 2pm so please come early and join in the fun. We will have a particular focus on attracting participants of all abilities this year and highlighting the fact the physical activity and sport is for all.”
