Great Britain – London Young Leaders Global 5k 2019

The Ireland Funds Great Britain’s Young Leaders and friends donned their running gear for this year’s Annual Global 5K charity run in collaboration with The Ireland Funds chapters in Australia, Singapore, Ireland and Canada.

Held for the second year-in-a-row at Hazelwood ‘The home of London Irish rugby’ and marshalled by Park Runs on the preset 5K track, it was a real team effort by IFGB, Hazelwood Centre and Park Runs.

After the run was complete – with lead runner Jeff McDonnell coming in at an impressive 18 minutes and 7 seconds – participants relaxed over a well-deserved two course lunch. The day was rounded off watching Ireland beat Wales in rugby over a ‘parting glass’ before all were bused back to central London.
