25th CALCUTTA RUN - 27 MAY 2023

On May 27, participants will run or walk the Blackhall Place-Phoenix Park 5K or 10K routes with friends and family. An excellent excuse to fundraise together while celebrating 25 years of the Run.

This year is the 25th Calcutta Run so we will be out in force, hoping to raise €400,000 for The Hope Foundation and Peter McVerry Trust. Our goal is that firms and individuals will sign up and fundraise to support our two great charity partners and make this the most successful Calcutta Run ever. So please spread the word among friends, family and colleagues.
