Since its inception in 2015, we’ve enjoyed huge growth with over 2,000 registrations expected in 2019. With the expansion, we have been able to attract participants from beyond our own immediate area, with participants travelling from Galway City & County, Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Offaly, Westmeath, Roscommon and Mayo. This serves to highlight the connections our event makes with people, not just locally but all over the West of Ireland, in Munster and the Midlands.
The Wren Run is just one part of our activities on the day. The other is the Wren Rising, which is a collection of traditional music sessions that takes place in multiple venues across Woodford village after the Wren Run. For these ‘Trad sessions’, local groups of musicians donate their time playing music to raise funds for Pieta House. The Wren Rising has been a fantastic success for us and attracts c. 500 to our 4 venues throughout the day.
You can register to take part or to show your support; along with automatic entry to the event, everyone that registers will be entered into our Monster Draw for some incredible blue chip prizes such as dinner at Neven Maguires, hotel breaks plus loads more! Why not put the Pieta House Wren Run on your to-do list for 2019 and REGISTER now. Entry Fees: Kids (U-16) €5 / Adults €10 / Family (max 2 adults and max 5 kids U-16) €20. All proceeds are split between Pieta House (50%) and local beneficiaries (50%) to invest in well-being facilities and initiatives for the local communties’ benefit.
