The highly anticipated AsIAm Run4Autism will return to Dublin’s Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, on Sunday, July 30.

Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the event will feature a host of exciting activities and entertainment for all ages.

AsIAm, Ireland’s National Autism Charity, is calling on members of the autistic community and wider public to get involved in this inclusive and exciting day.

The primary goal is to raise essential funds for autism services, which will provide crucial support to individuals and families.

No prior running experience is required and participants of all abilities are welcome to walk or run the 5K route, which is known as Georgia’s Way in memory of Georgia Callan, who died in an accident in Spain five years ago.

The gates will open at 11am and the festivities will kick off at 12 noon.

“This is a critical fundraising event for AsIAm. For the organisation to continue to offer the supports we currently do, we need to raise over €2 million each year,” said Adam Harris, CEO of AsIAm. 

“The money we raise goes directly to support all of the services we offer to the autistic community throughout the year, including the Autism Information Line, a range of social and employment programmes.

“We need your support to continue the work we do to give autistic people the same chance.”

Commenting on the event, mum, Ciara Jones, said: “The AsIAm 5k run, is such a magical day for families, it is day that brings families from all over Ireland together.

“It is an inclusive event that we as a family look forward to every year. This event allows you to connect with other families and create that all important conversation. It is a day that is filled with fun and joy for individuals and families.”

All participants who sign up to the event will receive branded merchandise and a medal and refreshments.

Registration fees start at €12.50 and can be done online:
