The run will take place in the beautiful surroundings of St. Anne’s Park, Raheny, Dublin 5.  Beginning from the top of the mile the course will follow a 5km track through the wooded grounds of St. Anne’s along the football pitches and through the rose garden. After the run has finished you will be able to see a display of our projects in Africa and learn about the work we do first hand. All proceeds go to VLM Ireland.

We are only a small organisation trying to keep Africa smiling. For this we have great volunteers, however, we need your help to make their dreams a reality.

Start your year the right way and run to keep Africa smiling.
