Monaghan Comhairle na nÓg in association with Monaghan Sports Partnership are hosting their first ever 5k fun Colour Run in Rossmore Forest Park on Sunday 23rd September at 11am.


This family fun event will launch a week long programme of activities that is planned as part of Monaghan Social Inclusion week. “Run/ Walk for Equality” is inviting everyone, of all ages, young and old, families or individuals, runners, and walkers to register and take part in this fun event.


Cost of entry is €5 per individual, discounts apply to family bookings. All proceeds are going to a local charity.


With music at the start line and throughout the course and refreshments at the finish, you are guaranteed lots of fun for the family! Don’t forget! Wear a white t-shirt and wear your sunnies!


Monaghan Comhairle na nÓg is a youth council made up of young people from right across County Monaghan and is supported by Monaghan County Council. Each year they take on a project with the hope of increasing awareness or making a change on their chosen topic. This year their project aims to support LGBT young people through a targeted schools media campaign. Their project ties in perfectly with the theme for Monaghan Social Inclusion week this year which is “I am Monaghan, We are Monaghan”. The idea being promoted that no matter who you are, what your religion is, what your nationality is, what your sexual orientation is, what your employment status is etc, you are a part of Monaghan!


So, what better way to celebrate the diversity of the community that make up Monaghan, than a colourful fun filled morning at a 5km Colour Run!
