Enthusiasm for Fun Run training

There's an increasing attendance at each of the two 5K Fun Run training sessions every week, writes Brian Byrne.

The Tuesday night sessions for the event, organised by Grainne McGrath, start at the Astro Turf pitch, the Thursday ones at the Scouts Den. Some of the Tuesday night people are pictured above.

Some of the participants walk, others jog, and a number are using the RTE 'Operation Transformation' programme to underpin their own progress.

Private weigh-ins are available for those last, with a donation of €5 per session. Otherwise it's a €2 donation per night.

All proceeds go to St Joseph's NS and St Anne's Special School on The Curragh.

The Fun Run itself is on Sunday 22 March, starting from Kilcullen Parish Centre.
