Run Flora Mini Marathon for ECO-UNESCO

There are hundreds of different types of events around the country and further afield that you can take part in and raise money through sponsorship from friends and family. From treks up mountains to across tropical plains, from walking road races to running a marathon to cycling across the Wicklow Gap there’s an event out there for you!

Don’t forget as these are all independently run events you will have to register with the organisers to guarantee your place.
