Poetry Day Ireland 5km Run
Thu 27 April 2017, 18:30 – 19:30 IST
Poet and athlete Alvy Carragher leads a 5km Poetry Run with poetic pitstops. Presented in partnership with Run Logic.
We can't imagine a better person to lead a poetry run than Alvy Carragher. Not only is Alvy an award-winning poet, poetry slam champion and blogger, whose first collection Falling in love with broken things was published by Salmon last year, but she is also a keen athlete and steeplechaser.
Don't worry if you can't quite keep up with Alvy though, there'll be plenty of poetry pitstops to allow you to catch your breath!
The meeting point and route in central Dublin will be confirmed shortly. Participation is free, or pay €10 and receive a bespoke Poetry Day Ireland t-shirt with some choice verses.
Please note that there will be no road closures for this event, and runners participate at their own risk.
