‘Run Around IRELAND’ Challenge

National Dates: March 6th – March 31st

ASF encourages ALL schools to commit to the 4-week ‘Run Around IRELAND’ challenge during the spring term.

  • It is a great way for pupils to learn about Ireland’s most famous landmarks, and to bring learning outdoors.
  • It supports the Athletics strand of the PE curriculum and gives pupils the opportunity to develop good running technique.
  • This challenge is also one of the key criteria for schools working towards ASF.

 If the above national dates don’t suit your school, you are free to organise the challenge at a different time.
