International Peace Torch to visit Dundalk on March 19th

The International Peace Torch will be arriving in Dundalk on Saturday March 19th as part of its European tour.

The torch will visit the Dundalk Parkrun event at Dundalk IT that morning where an international team of runners will complete the 5km circuit alongside locals, carrying the flaming torch.

So if you’d like to follow in the footsteps of athletes such as Sonia O’Sullivan and Catherina McKiernan by running with the Peace Torch, be sure to come along on March 19th.

Parkrun was launched in Dundalk last June. Since then the organisers have staged free, weekly 5km timed runs, which take place every Saturday at 9.30am.

Each week your time around the course is measured and recorded with a unique barcode that you scan each week allowing you to keep track of your progress.
