The Colm Horkan Memorial Run returns for a second year next month.

After the success of last years virtual run, East Mayo AC together with Charlestown Sarsfields GAA are looking forward to welcoming people to Charlestown for a race on the 12th of February 2022 where participants will receive a custom-made medal in memory of Colm.


There is also a virtual option where you can run, walk, treadmill or cycle your chosen distance and can take part anywhere in the world at you own pace over the same weekend. 

Monies raised will go towards the development of the new ‘All-Weather floodlit pitch’ at Charlestown GAA to be named the ’Colm Horkan Memorial Pitch’ and community walkways and will be a fitting legacy for the great man and a facility for the community to enjoy for generations to come.

This event will be organised in adherence with all Government and Health guidelines. Should restrictions re number of participants be implemented before the race, we will limit numbers accordingly and contact those that registered first to take part in the physical race and all other entries will be transferred to virtual participants.
