Every year adults and children gather in Newcastle to prepare for the 5k run. This year, the 5k - organized by Neasa O' Dwyer - is as usual being held in early January. The children in Scoil Mhuire have coloured art pictures to display for the people passing by on their way to the finish line. The art pictures will be judged by people helping organize the run, and one child will be chosen as winners from each class. The 5k run is open to anyone who would like to come in. If you want to participate with a family or by yourself, it would cost around €10. By participating you would get a number, and your time you crossed the finish line at. The hall is open to anyone back from the run, for refreshments and tea. Prizes are also given to the first two runners back. The donations will go to a good cause. Hopefully we'll see some new faces this year!
