Run With Ray In Mullingar

Run with Ray

Run with Ray is back!

RTÉ Radio 1’s The Ray D’Arcy Show hits the road later this month with runs planned in Donegal, Sligo, Westmeath, Wicklow, and Dublin.

Over five days from June 26th, Ray will be broadcasting from Buncrana in Donegal, Doorly Park, Sligo, Mullingar in Westmeath, Avondale House and Forest Park in Rathdrum, Wicklow, and Corkagh Park, Clondalkin in Dublin from 3pm to 4.30pm.

The event in Mullingar will see participants tackle a 5km course which will begin on the Old Trail Greenway at Newbrook on June 28.

It will get underway at 5.30 at the Newbrook Bridge and the route will finish at the Old Rail Trail Greenway.

Westmeath Sports Partnership is delighted to be partnering with Ray for the event which is a just a few days away.

Ray will join the starting line with runners in each community who have signed up to Run with Ray for 5km!  The team are looking for runners, joggers, and walkers from across the country to come along for a fun afternoon of craic, conversation, and community.
Over the last number of weeks Ray has been joined by running expert Mary Jennings on the show who has been helping listeners get run ready for the week of June 26th. As we get closer to the start line, Ray will be chatting with runners from around the country as they plan to join the team! 

The aim is to get communities outdoors and moving, Ray D’Arcy says: “We’re delighted to be back on the road for our Run with Ray 5k’s! We know from previous years that these are special events, people who do them, go on to change their lives. I know that sounds like a big statement, but it really does get people into moving around, being more active. So, if you’re out there and around Buncrana, Sligo, Mullingar, Wicklow or Dublin we’d love to see you!”

Registration is €5 and comes with a Run with Ray t-shirt.
