Run for our Community:  A Walk/Run/Relay to fundraise for local charities

Dunboyne Athletic Club are inviting all club members and the community to get involved in fundraising for two local charities Dunboyne Meals on Wheels and Dunboyne Friends of the Elderly. These two charities need our support now more than ever.

Dunboyne AC are inviting  our members to participate in a 24 hr run walk in aid of these charitable organisations with the aim of raising at least €2,000. This involves 24 hours of consistent running or walking in 30  minute segments from Friday June 5th at 3pm until Saturday June 6th at 3pm. You can do the run/walk solo or with your family whilst following social distancing guidelines. 

An Excel sheet with allocated time slots will be created requiring 48 time slots of a max 2 people, or a family from the same household running/ walking in the one place. The event will be commenced by our President Sean Conroy, who will run the first slot, at 3pm on Friday June 5th. We ask members to wear club gear while running/walking, if possible, and send a photo and/or video of you starting and being virtually tagged by your predecessor. To book a time slot, members can contact Teresa Cooney by email ( or PM Teresa on Facebook. For the club and community to support and donate – please click on the link below:

All money raised will go to the two local charities. These funds will be used to enhance services and provide much needed support for the vulnerable group they support.

We look forward to the support of our members, their families, Dunboyne community and surrounding areas as a whole.
