Charlie Curran Memorial Run to go ahead virtually this month

All funds raised go to √Čist cancer support centre in Carlow

This month sees the return of the eight annual Charlie Curran Memorial Run.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the race is being held virtually again this year, with participants encouraged to run, walk, jog, or use a treadmill throughout the month of January.

All of the funds raised will go towards the √Čist cancer support centre in Carlow.

Organiser of the event, Charlie Curran Jnr, explained to KCLR why it was important for the race to go ahead this year. This is a vital fundraiser, it’s also something people look forward to every year after Christmas. Thankfully with technology we can still go ahead with the event. All participants are welcome.
