Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run

The Run is a 5K run at Waterford Airport including running down the runway. This was chosen as a fitting tribute as it was used by Dara for the 10 years she served with "Rescue 117" at the Airport. It will be a charitable event with all proceeds going to our two chosen charities Waterford Hospice Home Care Team and Search and Rescue Dog Association (SARDA).

Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run

5K Run

I have run a lot of races and never experienced anything quite like today.. it was so moving and incredible to see such solidarity and respect from all the members of the rescue and emergency services... the venue, the organisation, the guard of honour from a team of hero's, a top class medal, fantastic atmosphere, a very detailed and easy to understand email with all FAQ... hard to believe this was a first time run as it was so well organised... organisers be proud of yourselves this was a hugely successful event, it would be great if you made this an annual event... thank you
