Get ready for an unforgettable day as the ‘AsIAm 5K Run4Autism’, returns to Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, on Sunday, 28th July! This year marks the 6th anniversary of the run, and it promises to be the best one yet, filled with excitement, entertainment, and community spirit. Charity Ambassador, Rory O'Connor best known as ‘Rory's Stories’, will lead out the run as he prepares to take on the Dublin City Marathon in aid of AsIAm in October. As the father of an Autistic child, Rory took on the challenge to raise more awareness and foster a supportive community for parents.

The 5k route at Corkagh Park, known as Georgia’s Way, is named after community member Georgia Callan who sadly passed away in 2018. The 5k route at Corkagh Park, is dedicated to her memory. Whether your part of the autistic community or just want to show your support, the run welcomes everyone to participate in this inclusive event. No need to be a seasoned runner – walkers, strollers, and runners of all abilities are encouraged to take on the 5k route.
