About This Activity

The Global Irish are running the world on 23 September 2017!

Led by Melbourne, supporters of The Ireland Funds from seventeen cities in six countries across four continents will take part in a series of 5k runs over thirty hours covering 80km. 

The baton will first travel around Australia, taking in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane then onto Tokyo before heading to Hong Kong to complete the Asia leg of the event.

Next up is Europe with London and Dublin, moving on to Toronto, Boston, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

This is your opportunity to take part in a truly global charity event, all while taking in the wonderful views at the famous Victoria Peak.

The money raised from the Hong Kong leg will provide much needed funds to the Hong Kong Guide Dog Association. Please visit their website here to learn about the great work they do everyday for the visually impaired people of Hong Kong.
