THE IRISH RUN THE WORLD by the Ireland Funds

The IJCC is glad to support the Irish Run in Tokyo! The second Tokyo Global 5k run will take place on Saturday 22 September 2018 5th Annual the Irish Run the World!

The collective chapters of The Ireland Fund Young Leaders from around the world will come together to host one event across 19 cities on 22 September 2018, in seven different countries. Starting in Brisbane, Australia, the Young Leaders and friends will run 5kms in their respective city before passing the ‘virtual baton’ off to the next city. The Global 5k will conclude when the last Young Leader crosses the finish line in San Francisco!

We invite everyone to join us to run, walk, shuffle, push the pram around the course or just come along for the BBQ and beers!
