Maynooth 10k and 5k Family Run

10th Anniversary 2020 is now closed



We'd like to thank all those who participated in this year's run. When Covid-19 descended, things looked bleak for our event but the virtual run was a great success and we really appreciate your support. Looking forward to seeing you all in person when running events are allowed again! Our 10K Times online paper is still available and well worth a read!

Donation to Friends of Maynooth Community Care Unit


This year the Maynooth 10k Committee were delighted to make a donation to a local frontline Covid charity, Friends of Maynooth Community Care Unit. This will be used to purchase much needed sensory equipment used in the care of residents in the Unit. The donation was presented by MEC student representatives to the Director of Nursing. They were joined by some of the staff of the Unit and members of the 10k committee. We would like to thank all this year's entrants who made this donation possible.

Maynooth 10k/5k Goes Virtual


Due to Covid 19 restrictions, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our physical event this year. We are offering a virtual race either 5k or 10k to be run in your own time before December 31, 2020. Our magnificent 10th anniversary medal sponsored by Pearls Dental and new Buff sponsored by Specsavers Maynooth will be posted out to you on submission of evidence on the Pop-Up Races mobile app.
Organized by MEC PTA, the Parent teacher association for Maynooth Education Campus, we are fund-raising as usual for the upkeep of the school playing fields on the Moyglare road and a new astro / MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area) at the school Campus.
This year in light of the Covid pandemic we are supporting a local frontline charity fund “Friends of Maynooth Community Care Unit” to purchase much needed equipment.
