The Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K is organised by dlr Sports Partnership and a range of local agencies and clubs who are delighted to once again have our local credit union as title sponsor. Funding support is also provided by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the HSE. The Community Gardaí and Dublin Civil Defence also assist to ensure a safe and fun event.

Shane McArdle, Co-ordinator with dlr Sports Partnership, commented “The Community 5k is an event that we really look forward to every year. It’s a great example of how all ages and abilities can be included in physical activity from the 80-year-old walker to the competitive runner who all cross the finish line as winners.”

Places are limited so it’s important to book yours today. Register on-line or return a completed registration form which is available by email or by phone on 01 271 9502.

Many of the club’s players, family members and friends take part in this great community event and it’s likely that we’ll have some changes to our fixtures schedule for the day, so do keep an eye on here for any such details.
