Would you like to take part in a fun active event for all the family? If so register now for the Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K, taking place on Saturday 7th October 2017. This event returns for its ninth year in full force with over 1,000 participants walking, jogging or rolling the 5km scenic route around Kilbogget Park.

This event will take place during the dlr's ‘Festival of Inclusion’, and prides itself on being fully-inclusive, suitable for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. With a DJ on hand to add to the electrifying atmosphere, each participant receives an event t-shirt at sign-in and refreshments on crossing the finish line as well as a medal for children.

At just €5 for adults and free for children, this event will give everyone the opportunity to get out, have fun and be active.

The Core Credit Union dlr Community 5K is organised by dlr Sports Partnership and a range of local agencies and clubs who are delighted to once again have our local Credit Union as title sponsor. Funding support is also provided by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the HSE. The Community Gardai and Dublin Civil Defence also assist to ensure a safe and fun event.

Shane McArdle, Coordinator with dlr Sports Partnership, commented “The Community 5K is an event that we really look forward to every year. It’s a great example of how all ages and abilities can be included in physical activity from the 80 year old walker to the competitive runner who all cross the finish line as winners.”

Places are limited so it’s important to book as soon as you can.
