The Virtual GT5K will return this September. We want to keep our workforces healthy and running and we hope you’ll all be able to join us this year, wherever you are in Ireland or the world.
This year we’re asking you to #DoItForDementia as the registration fee will be split between The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland and supporting up and coming Athletes in Athletics Ireland’s junior programmes.
We invite you to register as a team* or an individual, run your best 5K at any point on Wednesday 8 September and register your time. Watch the leaderboard to see how your getting on! GT5K 2021 invites corporate teams, family teams, sports club teams or the individual runner to take part, compete and do if for dementia.
In a year where all charities have struggled we are delighted to continue to support The Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland, in advocating, empowering and championing the rights of people living with dementia and their communities.
The event also supports the development of young athletes with Athletics Ireland’s junior high performance programme, enabling them to reach their full potential.
When you register you will receive a GT5K t-shirt to add to your collection – or start it!
