Katie Taylor Endorses Terenure 5 Mile

Despite her busy schedule leading up to the London Olympics this summer, Katie Taylor recently took time out to meet some other special Olympians, - members of the Special Olympic South Dublin Sports Club.
It was all part of her enthusiastic endorsement of the Terenure 5 mile run on Sunday May 13th. which aims to raise €10,000 for Special Olympics (Eastern region).
The run, organised by Sportsworld Running Club, is on a 5 mile flat course around Terenure, Fortfield and Templeogue. Race organiser Trevor Lloyd says this is an ideal warm up for those entering the mini marathon being held just 3 weeks later. The race was formally launched last month by Lucinda Creighton, Minister for European Affairs who was one of the early entrants in the race.
With €5 of the entry fee going direct to Special Olympics and the 1st 1000 entrants being guaranteed a high quality technical tee shirt, a big turn-out is expected. Those wishing to have an enjoyable run while helping athletes less fortunate than most of us can register by logging on at
