We are a small club but we have a mighty community in our 2 villages so come on Stratford and Grangecon let’s #Run4Pieta and see how many Kms we can cover.
Our club has very strong connections with the Darkness to Light events with our closest annual walk in Baltinglass being established by some of our members. We are enormously proud of this connection and want to help bring our communities together for this is event in a new unique way.

We have seen across the country how communities have rallied. Our €1000raised will help to save a life by helping Pieta to carry out their work.
In the midst of the global pandemic, the annual darkness to light events have been cancelled which will result in €6.5 million of a shortfall. With Pieta house a critical service for many and as darkness continues within this time of crisis for some we want to shine a light.
