Over the last two years the absence of social work events has been largely felt. We are pleased to advise that the Grant Thornton Corporate 5K Team Challenge Run is back this autumn to help workforces to stay active and healthy while also enjoying some social team building, and as such IACT will be entering teams.
This will take place in the Docklands on Tuesday 4th October at 7:45pm. Run in association with Athletics Ireland, it is aimed at encouraging social running amongst the business community in Dublin.
Join us with over 5,000 other runners in this corporate challenge. This 5K flat course is a great distance for beginners and experienced runners alike, so there is no excuse for you and your work colleagues, partners and friends not to give it a try!
You can enter either as an individual and we will team you up with others to make up a team, or you can enter a full company team of four. There are three categories available; male, female and mixed. The ofﬁcial score for each team is determined by the recorded times of the registered team members, with accurate chip timing for all participants.
You will also be supporting a good cause as IACT will pay all entry fees and organise your registration.
2022 nominated Charity
This year the registration fee will be split between the Irish Red Cross https://www.redcross.ie/ and supporting up and coming Athletes in Athletics Ireland’s junior programmes.
We will register on your behalf; all you need to do is to turn up on the day. We will provide you with an IACT t-shirt for the race, and all entrants will also receive the official 'event' t-shirt.
To facilitate our members, we have booked a meeting space in the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel (formerly Jurys Inn), Custom House Quay, which is conveniently located near to both the Start and Finish lines.
As we are registered as a group, it is not necessary for you go to the official area to pick up your race number and bag drop.
You simply need to go directly to the hotel on the day between 6:00PM and 7:00PM and we will give you your race numbers, t-shirts, and pins before you head to your designated assembly area. You can also leave any baggage with us. Participants are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to avoid congestion.
After the race we invite you to return to the hotel for well-earned refreshments and bar food and an informal IACT prizegiving!
