Benefits

Be Brave for Barnardos and take up a running challenge for children who haven’t found their feet in life.  Whether it’s a couch-to-5k or reaching new distances with your running, there are so many incredible running events taking place across Ireland and overseas to help you set a new personal best.  Take up the challenge to complete a fun run, adventure race, mini or full marathon.   

Why do it for Barnardos?

By supporting Barnardos, you help us to continue delivering our vital services to vulnerable children and families across the country. In today’s Ireland, an estimated 138,000 children (that’s one in eight) are living in consistent poverty – the type of poverty that leaves them without the most basic of needs. For these children and their families daily life is a struggle and our services are vital in making sure they overcome the daily challenges that hold them back so they don’t slip through the cracks. With the incredible support of our donors we can be there to ensure these children have the best start in life and not get left behind.

Some Inspiration

There are so many fun runs, 5k’s and 10k’s across Ireland all year - many of which offer multiple levels and allow you to walk, jog or run.  All you have to do is choose one for your level and kick start your training!  How about the Dublin Night Run, Dublin or Cork Womens Mini Marathon, the Dublin City Marathon or travelling further afield for an overseas marathon.
