It gives us great pleasure and pride to look back on the Griffith Avenue Mile 2019, an event that surpassed all expectations.
We had 1,000 participants from across the athletics and local communities take part in the first Griffith Avenue Mile event to be held in nearly 36 years. Hundreds more turned out to line the avenue in support of those taking part. A snapshot of the colour and fun of the day is below.
The Griffith Avenue Mile involved months of planning and many hours of hard work. But it could not have happened without the positivity and support of the local community and all of the runners, young and old, from near and far.
We hope that, through your support and association with the event, you now share our pride in having re-launched the Griffith Avenue Mile.
We have received many messages of thanks, encouragement and offers of support to stage the event in 2020 and beyond. While 2020 has not worked out as we expected, we are already looking forward to the challenge in 2021!To find out more about the Griffith Avenue mile, visit GriffithAvenueMile.ie and follow the Griffith Avenue Mile on Twitter and Facebook.
