Following many requests from parents and schools alike Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run added a new event for 2013 especially for the younger audience.
This not for profit event was organised by Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run in conjunction with Limerick City and County Sports Partnerships and the HSE.
Three events, namely a 4k Run/Jog for 8-12 yrs and 1 km Jog/Walk for 4-7 yrs took place on the grounds of the University of Limerick and a 1 km event for children in wheelchairs took place on the track. All participants received a finisher's medal and race t-shirt.
One third of all race proceeds generated were used for physical activity programmes for Limerick primary schools.
