The Nazareth House 500k – 1000k Challenge

Run, walk or push 1000km in one year in aid of Nazareth House.

Nazareth House challenges you to get out and about and to cover 500km or 1000km in one year. The 365 days begin once you register.

Walk it, jog it, run it or even dance it. The choice is yours. You will need to walk just 1.4km every day to cover the 500km in the year and double it to cover the 1000km. You may already be a keen walker or runner and achieve this over a number of marathons or you may be starting off from the couch to 5km, either way, do it your way.

Take this on as a personal challenge, or better still, get your family, friends and colleagues involved.

Whatever way you take part, the money you raise is supporting Nazareth House to build and refurbish our Nursing homes all around Ireland so that people living there have the most comfortable homes where they can live out their lives in style. You choose which Nazareth House you wish to support.

Each participant will receive a medal and certificate on completion of the challenge.
