Congratulations to all our runners and walkers!
This years Calcutta Run – the Legal Fundraiser took place on Saturday 17th May. The 16th year of the event was once again a huge success with 1,100 runners and walkers participating on the day. The sun shone while participants made their way on the 5km and 10km routes through Phoenix Park. The after-event kicked off around midday when the BBQ was fired up. Children played on the bouncy castles before taking their turn participating in the athletics activities. The Dublin Civil Defence was on hand with their fire engine carrying out demonstrations. The final of the Calcutta Run Tennis Tournament commenced around 1pm. All in all, a great day was had by all.
The final sponsorship total is not yet known but will be announced in the coming weeks. A huge thank you to everyone who ran or walked, raised money, acted as a firm champion, volunteered on the day, organised an event for the fundraising day etc. If anyone has any outstanding sponsorship money please send to Calcutta Run DX 79 Dublin.
