Alan Mahon 5k Run
Thursday June 30th 2022 marks the 3rd anniversary of local man Alan Mahon, who tragically passed away while climbing Mt Elbrus, the highest peak in Russia and Europe in 2019.
This year, with the generous support of Kildangan Stud, the local community will pay tribute to Alan with a 5k chipped run through the grounds of Kildangan Stud. Registration for the 5k run is available here and starts at 6.30pm sharp. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the highly acclaimed stud.
The events will be directly followed by music & Kildangan hospitality of a BBQ, tea/coffee
& treats and free children's activities in the GAA grounds.
Proceeds from the evening will all go back into the local community - namely to Kildangan National School where Alan's legacy lives on through his children Nora, Alice and Ollie.
Everyone is welcome, join us to celebrate Alan's life and get one step closer to a healthier lifestyle and discover this wonderful Kildangan area that’s rarely seen - a spectacular route through so many townlands steeped in history.
