Notice: Very Pink Run in Bishopstown - Sun 8th Oct 2023

Breast Cancer Ireland are holding their Very Pink Run this year at MTU in Bishopstown on Sunday 8th October 2023.

There is a choice of 5k and 10k distances, the run starts at 12-noon and the entry fee is €31 for adults. All proceeds go to this charity.

The runs are not timed but they seem to be using the same accurate courses as the Rebel Run so participants can time themselves.

From the organisers... "Our goal at Breast Cancer Ireland is, through research, to transform breast cancer, from often being a fatal disease, to a chronic illness that can be maintained long term through treatment. Help us speed up discovery times to affect a more positive outcome for patients. 

Since 2011, the Very Pink Run has raised in excess of €6 million, to support our ongoing research and education programmes nationally

The Very Pink Run offers the opportunity for men women and children to participate in a fun filled morning of a pinktastic showcase with music, face painters and fun for all the family. We have a 5k fun run, jog, walk or wheel and a 10K Challenge – there is something for everyone

Please note there is no chip timing for this event and t-shirts are on a first come first served basis "
