Fun Run sign 2015

Our Annual 5km Fun Run / Walk will take place Sunday, 3rd of May.  This is the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday week-end.  The event this year is being run by our hard-working Parents’ Association with the aim of raising much needed funds for the extension & refurbishment of our school canteen.  The event will start at 11am sharp with Registration from 10.30am in the School Gym.

The management, staff, students and parents/guardians at Coláiste Mhuire Johnstown are calling on the whole school community and the hinterland to support this event in any way yo can.  Please sponsor our students and / or participate yourself on the day, Sunday 3rd May 2015.  All proceeds will go towards the School Canteen Renovation Fund.

The course will be 5km starting and finishing at our school in Johnstown, Co Kilkenny with a trek up the Old Dublin Road (N8) towards Cullahill, Co Laois.  Check out our official poster above, follow us on Twitter @ColaisteMhuireK for updates & reminders or contact the School Office on 056-8831135 for further information.

Last year was our inaugural event with two past pupils securing the 1st Male & Female spots, namely Peter Bergin (Lisdowney) and Mary Corcoran (Galmoy).  Peter’s solid time of 19 minutes 20 seconds is our current Course Record.  Will this time be beaten this year?  Have you got what it takes?!  Come along and find out.
