Edenmore National School Marathon


On Sunday May 27th the pupils, parents, staff and wider community of Edenmore N.S. will be holding a unique running fundraiser in Emyvale Parish Field.  They will be running various distances in small groups with each group contributing to the 26.2 miles of the marathon distance.  Family members, staff and volunteers will be running distances of 2, 4 or 6 miles and pupils will be finishing off the run in their respective classes.  All pupils in the school have been practicing for the event by completing the Daily Mile Challenge each day where every child in the school attempts to run at least a mile.

All support is welcome and if you wish to make a donation you can do so b giving to any family or by coming along on the day.  Everyone is welcome to participate on the day.  If you would like to complete a distance please contact the school office (047 87618) or just come along on the day and do what you can.  The run will begin at 2pm and will finish at 5 p.m. (approx).
