Preceded by months of preparation by local community groups large and small, Fun Run promises to be one amazing day involving thousands of participants showing off their extraordinary talents.

Inspired by and in homage to the Greek messenger Pheidippides, who was sent to Athens to announce the Persians’ defeat in the Battle of Marathon, running the entire distance without stopping, Fun Run is a show that allows everyone to increase their fitness and display their brilliance.

At the centre of this five-hour performance is artist Tristan Meecham who will run a marathon on a treadmill at Salthill Park rallied and encouraged by cheerleading performances from community groups, school groups and members of the general public.
Galway groups will be invited to join in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take to the stage and stand in the spotlight!
