The Challenge

Join Team Daisy in taking to the streets of Dublin on Sunday 27th October 2024 in aid of Cancer Fund for Children!


The iconic race will take you through St Stephen’s Green and St Patrick’s Cathedral before reaching the quays and crossing the Liffey onto the northside. The 26.2 mile / 42.2 km trek will then take you through Phoenix Park, Castleknock and Chapelizod before crossing the Liffey once more and travelling through Ballyfermot, Kilmainham and Rialto. You will then head out into west Dublin along the Crumlin, Drimnagh and Walkinstown roads before passing through Terenure, Rathgar and Milltown. From there, the route travels through Clonskeagh, before heading past University College Dublin and looping down Nutley Lane before the final two miles through Ballsbridge to the finish line at Merrion Square.


It is quite the adventure and Cancer Fund for Children are calling on you to join us to help us ensure that we can reach young people and families impacted by cancer when they need us most.
