Virtual Grant Thornton 5K Challenge 2020

The Grant Thornton 5K Challenge will take place virtually from the 14th – 16th August 2020


Event Description:

COVID 19 will not keep us standing still…. The GT5K 2020 is here and this year it’s virtual.

This year we ask you #doitfordementia as the registration fee will be split between Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland, and supporting up and coming Irish athletes.

This year we invite you to register as a team or an individual, run your best 5K over the weekend of 14th – 16th August and submit your time. There will be a live individual and team leaderboard and  GT5K 2020 invites corporate teams, family teams, sports club teams or the individual runner to register and #doitfordementia.

All registered participants will have the option to purchase a 2020 Virtual GT5K technical running jersey to add to, or start your collection. A digital goodie bag will be sent to all participants during race week.
