Laytown beach welcomes Co. Meath`s latest Parkrun location.

Park Run on Laytown Beach

Parkun Laytown is now a go to location for walkers, joggers, runners and strollers alike! On Saturday 2nd March, Minister for Sport, Thomas Byrne officially launched ParkRun Laytown. With the support of upwards of 350 participants, Minister Byrne led by example and completed this augural 5km Parkrun event.

Parkrun Laytown is a unique event even within Parkrun circles, as it is one of the few parkrun events which take place throughout Ireland on a beach! This new location for Meath was made possible by funding provided to Meath Local Sports Partnership under the HSE Section 39 funding measure.

Minister for Sport, Thomas Byrne congratulated Race Director, Pat Maher; Chief Volunteer Parkrun Laytown, Ruth Huban and the host of stewards from Laytown who made this event possible. He wishes the committee every success and is looking forward to taking part regularly in Parkrun Laytown.

Speaking on behalf of Meath Local Sports Partnership, Chairperson and local Councillor, Sharon Tolan praised the staff team in Meath LSP, Ruth Huban and her team of volunteers in Laytown, Meath County Council and the HSE for their support in ensuring that Laytown became the 5th venue in Co. Meath to host a parkrun event.

Parkrun is a free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate ..its up to you!
