Join Trócaire’s 5km Hero Fun Run on 3 July

Adjust your capes and raise super amounts for those who need it most!

Trócaire challenges you to join the fight for justice by donning your favourite hero outfit for a day to take part in our 5km Hero Fun Run on 3 July 2016.

The event is open to everyone, and all money raised will enable Trócaire to support people and communities in over 20 developing countries worldwide to bring about lasting change.

Trocaire 5km fun run

Fundraising is the oxygen of our organisation. Without the generous support of the Irish public we would not be able to do the work we do in tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice. That’s why we need you to take part in the Trócaire 5km Hero Fun Run and provide our oxygen.


Sunday 3rd July 2016

Naas Racecourse, Tipper Road, Naas, Co Kildare
