Park Run fever has swept across the globe with over 20 countries now involved in this inclusive initiative. Here in Killarney we have held a park run for many years and here at the International Hotel we are over the moon to be the Park Run’s Hospitality Partner. As well as offering a post run special for participants, our staff and their families get involved in the run itself each Saturday morning. If you haven’t yet participated in a Park Run somewhere around the world, Killarney would be a great start with the starting and finish line only across the road from us here at the International Hotel!
The Park Run movement provides a free timed and measured five kilometre run for over four million people worldwide, aided by over four hundred thousand volunteers. The Killarney event takes place at Killarney House, every Saturday morning at 9.30am. This event is open to all, both adults and children, to run, jog, walk as you chose and is completely free.
It is a social event which attracts everyone from the fastest runners to beginners and to those just looking for an excuse to walk 5k in the wonderful National Park and of course, the best part is the very welcome Park Runners Special at The Brasserie in the International afterwards, although after all that exercise you may well deserve a full Irish, and that is also available!
Please come and walk, jog or run with us but if you are not registered already, please do register first at https://www.parkrun.ie/register/ and bring your printed barcode to every parkrun – our front desk will be happy to print your barcode if you stop by.
