Limerick Sports Partnership utilise local mass participation events to help engage individuals and groups to participate in physical activity through the medium of ‘Coach to 3k/5k’ initiatives. These mass participation events become the ‘celebration’ event for all beginner participants having completed a 6/8 week training programme.
These are established events on the running calendars in Limerick for the last number of years based on quality, reputation and efficiency around the managing and hosting of these mass participation events.
Completing a mass participation event in your home city can be a very motivating experience to any beginner jogger/runner. Having a targeted mass participation event locally at various times of the year helps support Limerick Sports Partnership achieve their objectives in motivating and engaging low participation target groups to return to regular physical activity.
The parkrun phenomenon, which is a community led physical activity initiative, has grown in popularity across Limerick in recent years. The LSP are delighted to support these volunteer led community based initiatives in providing weekly walk/jog/run opportunities at 4 sites in Limerick city and county, including a junior parkrun in Shelbourne Park.
