Glenville to Croke Park  Challenge

The club are delighted to announce a 252km virtual  Glenville to Croke Park Challenge, where you will virtually walk, jog, run or cycle from Glenville to Croke Park.  You will navigate 252km over 15 weeks (or less).  The first adventurers will kick off on the 15th May 2021 coinciding with the start of the National football league and finishing on the day of the All-Ireland football final on 29th August. The money raised will go towards our new 3G pitch. You can submit your distances daily and track your progress via the MyRunResults website and for those that are more competitive you can keep an eye on the leader board too. 

Feel free to post pictures along the way to Instagram, Twitter & Facebook and let us know how you are getting on.  You will receive a certificate when you finish – ‘BEST OF LUCK’
