The Irish Run the World

The Ireland Funds

Global 5k – New York

   Presented by KPMG

The collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders from around the world will host an event together – The Irish Run the World, a Global 5K race.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015, the event will span over 20hrs, and cover over 75km, in 15 different cities and 6 different countries.

Starting in Brisbane, Australia, the Young Leaders will run a 5km in their respective city before passing the ‘virtual baton’ off to the next city.

The Global 5k will conclude when the last Young Leader crosses the finish line in Los Angeles!
