In preparation for the run, students and staff have been engaging with our Strava challenge. Each year group is participating as a team and working together to try and complete the most KMs in a given week. Competition between years and staff is heating up.

"Crescent's link with the Daughters of Charity is central to our student experience in which we always strive to develop young adults with a social justice perspective and a commitment to help other people in society.”

Registration for the run is €5 for students and €10 for adults and can be done through the miscellaneous easy payments section on crescentsj.com pay.easypaymentsplus.com
