Tem­ple Street char­ity run

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

There will be a one-day fes­ti­val of run­ning in the grounds of Avondale House and For­est Park on Satur­day, April 14, in aid of Tem­ple Street Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

The fes­ti­val, which is be­ing or­gan­ised by the Wick­low Hospice Crew, will con­sist of a choice of five dis­tances: five, ten, 15 and 20 miles of a full marathon. Places are lim­ited to 200 peo­ple.

On­line en­try costs €25 and is open at www.sport­szone.ie or will cost €30 on the day, pro­vided there are spa­ces avail­able.

Walk­ers are more than wel­come and there is a spe­cially struck medal for the 200 par­tic­i­pants. Spring Clean ini­tia­tive, the plan is to have a ma­jor clean up on all the high­ways and by­ways of the area. Rres­i­dents are en­cour­aged to head out their gates, pick any lit­ter be­tween their house and the next, then pass on the refuse sack to the next able bod­ied neigh­bour un­til the last res­i­dent or rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the road hits Round­wood vil­lage, where all the bags will be col­lected and brought for re­cy­cling or to land­fill.

If some­one can’t do April 14, any time this month is fine. Where prac­ti­cal, res­i­dents are asked to put all plas­tics, glass and other re­cy­clables in the one bag. All vol­un­teers are asked to wear a hi-vis jacket for safety on the road.

There was a great re­sponse from the com­mu­nity of Round­wood and Moneystown to this ini­tia­tive in 2016.
