Ireland – Young Leaders Global 5k 2015

Date : 26th September, 2015

Join us on Saturday, September 26, 2015 in Monkstown Rugby Club, Sandymount, Dublin 4 for the 2nd Annual Global 5K.

Following the global success of the inaugural Ireland Fund Young Leaders Global 5k run, we are back to do it bigger and better this year!

On September 26th, 2015, the event will span 15 different cities across 6 different countries over a 30 hour period. Kicking off down under in Brisbane, the event will hand the ‘virtual baton’ over to other participating cities concluding when our last runner crosses the finish line in Los Angeles.
