Dundalk FC head coach Stephen O’Donnell will be on hand to cheer on the participants at the Mizu Santa Pressie Dash.

This year’s event, which is being held in aid of the Maria Goretti Foundation and Dundalk Women’s Aid, and remembers the late Josephine Hearty, takes place on Sunday, December 4th at 11am in the Marshes Shopping Centre.

The Santa Pressie Dash is a free event that is open to runners, walkers and wheelchair users of every age. The dress code is festive so participants are encouraged to get creative!

The three-mile/five-kilometre route starts at the main door of the Marshes Shopping Centre and will be supported by Setanta Triathlon Club.

Donations are optional on the day and if you can bring unwrapped presents for a child aged 1–14 it will help local charities or children in need.
