Cork Calcutta Run 2022

Dear Colleagues,

The Cork Calcutta Run takes place this year on Sunday morning 29th May 2022 in Blackrock. It is a 5km walk/fun run, and suitable for all ages and abilities. It will be followed by a BBQ in the grounds of Blackrock National Hurling Club. We hope to make this an annual social event for the SLA, while also raising funds for two great charities – SHARE and The Hope Foundation .

This will be the third SLA Cork Calcutta Run. With your support, we have raised nearly €20k in our first two events, which was divided equally between the 2 charities. We hope to have an even bigger and better event this year!

We would ask each participant to make a contribution of €20 per person, with a family rate of €50. All participants receive a Goodie Bag, along with their race bib.

We would also encourage firms to match the amounts raised by staff members.

While there is a competitive element for some runners, it is also a 5km fun walk and we would expect as many walkers as runners to take part ! We would ask all members of the SLA, your family and friends to take part in this event (including your 4-legged ones!) making it a fun day out for all, while supporting a very worthwhile cause.

The route takes place largely on the Old Blackrock Railway line (see route map below) and the run will be chip timed and stewarded. Bib and goodie bag collection (and late registration) will take place from 9am to 10:15am at the Blackrock National Hurling Club, Church Road, Blackrock. There are changing facilities and ample parking available. Participants will walk to and from the Club to the start/finish line.

Refreshments will be available in Blackrock National Hurling Club after the event to include a BBQ, which is free for all event participants.

Registration to take part is online in advance, before 20 May 2022 at . Please register asap so we can plan for numbers on the day.

Registration fees should be paid in advance please to the SLA Office, Courthouse, Washington Street, Cork or can be handed in on the morning when collecting your race bib.  Cheques should be made payable to the Southern Law Association.


Many thanks,
