This year marks the sixth anniversary of the run, and charity ambassador, Rory O’Connor best known as ‘Rory’s Stories’, will lead out pack in preparation for his Dublin City Marathon run in aid of AsIAm this October. 

As the father of an Autistic child, Rory took on the challenge to raise more awareness and foster a supportive community for parents.

The 5km route at Corkagh Park, known as Georgia’s Way, is named after community member Georgia Callan who died in  2018. 

The run welcomes everyone to get involved, whether they’re a member of the autistic community or just want to show their support, walkers, strollers and runners of all abilities are encouraged to join.
