Winner of Short Distance Race of the Year 2017

Running in Ireland Award Short Distance

The Inaugural Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run at Waterford Airport on Saturday 16th September 2017 was a huge success and showed great community spirit and teamwork. The sell-out event, with 1,000 runners registered, was a really emotional event for many who took part and was a great tribute not only to Dara and the crew of Rescue 116 but all the emergency services.

On behalf of all the team who helped make this event the success it was, we want say a big THANK YOU for voting for the run.

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
