World Record attempt in Rathcoole in aid of the Irish Cancer Society

GRAB your friends and head to Rathcoole Park on Saturday 5th September, to join former athletics world champion John Treacy, some well known local faces and prominent sports stars in a Guinness Book of Records world record attempt!

On a day to remember, thousands of people from the Four Districts of Rathcoole, Saggart, Newcastle and Brittas will converge on Rathcoole Park (opposite Avoca, just off the N7) to try to set a new world record for the most number of people to walk one mile for charity in one day.

We all have one life and we all know of at least one life that has been touched by cancer. This world record attempt – under the watchful eye of the Guinness Book of World Records adjudicators – is one determined attempt of a community to come together to aid those whose lives have been hit by cancer.

Here’s how it works:

From 9.00am until 6.00pm on Saturday 5th September EVERBODY is invited to turn up at a time that suits them, register their name, pay an entry fee of €10 per adult or €20 per family then walk a mile in the Park.

For those who would rather walk a little further, a 6 mile walk will commence from the Park at 3.00pm and will take in the beautiful surrounding countryside of South County Dublin. The last mile of this will be in the Park and will contribute to the world record attempt.

There will be lots of family fun activities and entertainment in the Park during the day. Parking will be provided by all local sporting clubs, including Commercials Hurling Club, St Mary’s GFC and Rathcoole Boys FC.

Once the record breaking attempt officially ends all participants are invited to gather at Citywest hotel, from 8pm onwards, where the Guinness World Record result will be announced!

Remember every person counts – every mile counts. Play your part. One day, one mile, one life.
