What is the Family Mile Challenge?

What is the Family Mile Challenge?

The Family Mile Challenge is a mile long running challenge taking place on the weekend of the 26th and 27th June.

Families can sign-up free of charge and a family friendly training programme will be available to all families that take part.

There is a collective challenge to see if all the miles clocked by families that weekend matches the average miles covered by an Irish International marathon runner in a year - that’s  4,000 miles.
 
The main goal however is to get out, get active and have fun together!
