The Ireland Funds

Global 5k
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.

We will send you a personal invitation when registration opens.

On Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015, the event will span over 30hrs, and cover over 75km, in 15 different cities and 6 different countries. Starting in Melboue, 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 San Francisco!
