Sandymount Night Run In Aid Of Umbrella Foundation







Railway will be running for charity in the second annual Sandymount Night Run on Tuesday 3rd March.

"As part of our charity initiatives this year, we'll be participating in Sandymount Night Run in aid of the Umbrella Foundation, a fantastic charity who work to alleviate the impact of trafficking, poverty and war on children and their families in Nepal," explained Railway's Fiona Spillane. 

"The event organiser Eoin Ryan has very kindly agreed to donate a portion of the entrance fee to the charity and this amount will be matched by our members."

 The run has an option of two distances of 5k and 10k.  The entrance fee for the 5k run is €20 and the 10k is €25, with €10 from each entrance fee going directly to the Umbrella Foundation.

"We've chosen this charity as our Girls U18s are reigning Umbrella 7s champions and will be looking for retain their title in Terenure on the Saturday after the run.  Our Girls U15s will also be competing in the competition for the first time."

"In addition, our Girls U18s and U15s will be sourcing their own sponsorship," concluded Spillane. 

Race supremo Eoin Ryan said he was delighted to partner with Railway.

"We're delighted to be working with Railway and to be supporting the Umbrella Foundation," said Ryan, "Sandymount is an ideal location for the run.  It's a long straight course with minimal turns, which makes this a safe and contained night run.  We promise a great atmosphere and lots of fun on the night."

The event is limited to 1000 participants, with 50 places reserved for Railway.  Entry is open to all members and friends of Railway and it caters for the competitive athletes to joggers and walkers.  In addition, all those who complete the event will receive a finisher's medal. 

"Our coaches have moved training to Monday night to allow players to participate and we have many Legends members who are competitive runners and tri-athletes, as well as some older Legends who have a very active Tuesday walking club," said Spillane.  "Places will fill up fast, so book your place quickly to avoid disappointment."
