2024 Calcutta Run aims to raise €350,000

The Law Society and its charity partners are aiming to raise €350,000 from this year’s Calcutta Run, which takes place on Saturday 25 May.

Since 1999, the Calcutta Run has raised €5.3 million in support of homelessness services in Ireland and Kolkata (formerly Calcutta).

In 2023, over 1,800 participants took part in 2023 across the Dublin Calcutta Run and its associated events – the Golf Classic, Rogers Recruitment Tag Rugby, and the Cork Calcutta Run.

Registration for this year’s event is now open for firms and individuals.

Raffle for rugby jersey

The Dublin run consists of a 6km and 10km run and walk, beginning and ending in Blackhall Place and proceeding through the Phoenix Park and surrounding areas.

This year’s Cork run takes place on Sunday 26 May, beginning and ending in Blackrock.

The Law Society’s main charity partners for this year’s legal fund-raiser are the Dublin Simon Community and the Hope Foundation, who both work to support the homeless.

This year’s Calcutta Run raffle will feature a prize of an Irish rugby jersey signed by Ireland’s Six Nations men’s squad.

The result will be revealed on the day of the run (25 May).
