The 10K Gathering Weekend – May 2013

by unaphillips on March 22, 2013

By now most people will have heard of The Gathering 2013. The Gathering is an exciting year-long celebration of Ireland, its people and all that is great about its connections, both at home and abroad. The Gathering Ireland invites anyone who has a link to Ireland or just loves the country, to come to Ireland for a series of events throughout 2013.
Over the past two years the Maynooth 10k Challenge has established itself as one of the premier 10k events in Ireland. In 2012 the event attracted over 700 runners, joggers and walkers to the historic town of Maynooth. This year’s 10K will be the centre piece of a Gathering Weekend running from Friday 17th – Sunday 19th May. The weekend will feature a range of events including a welcome reception on Friday night, an exhibition of old photographs from the school archives and from local collectors, guided walking tours focusing on the Four C’s – Carton, College, Castle and Canal, visits to a working farm, musical and food events.  The 10K will be held on Sunday morning followed by a Gathering on Sunday afternoon.
Planning is well advanced for the 10k. This year we plan to publish and distribute 12,000 copies of the Maynooth 10K Times. The deadline for advertisements in the dedicated newspaper is 16th April. All businesses who advertise in the 10K Times will also get a free listing and placing of their logo on the Maynooth 10K Gathering website. Our dedicated advertising sales people are currently canvassing local businesses and getting a great reception even in these recessionary times. Our local businesses recognise the value that the advertising offers with distribution now being increased to 12,000. The PTA would encourage all parents of MPPS to support the local businesses who advertise with us and support our school.
