There will be a fun walk, jog or run in the beautiful grounds of the Kilkenny Castle Park on Sunday April 17th starting at 11 am. The route will cover a distance of five km, which will be 3 short laps around the Castle Park. With Easter just around the corner there will be chocolate treats for everyone taking part with special prizes for the1st, 2nd and 3rd place, for the best fancy dress, the best dressed dog as well as every 10th finisher. Entry is just €5 per person and €15 for a family – dogs are free!
This fun event will be timed and provides excellent training for anyone preparing for the many more serious running events this summer, as well as an opportunity to simply enjoy the Castle Park and earn some chocolate at the same time. According to event organiser, Nicky Read, “This event is all about participation and having fun. Everyone is welcome to join in and everyone will get a chocolaty prize – some bigger than others!” Registration on the day will be at the tennis club before 10.45 am. The event is a fundraiser for the Loreto Secondary school and is being organised by the Loreto Parents Association.
