One of our most enjoyable initiatives this year, The Daily Mile Schools Event, took place in Marlay Park on Thursday 9th May. Nearly 1,300 primary school children from six schools around the County ran a mile route within Marlay Park and were awarded a medal of achievement at the finish line.
This event was held to celebrate the hard work and dedication of the students to the Daily Mile initiative throughout their school year. A simple concept where students leave their desks for 15 minutes a day to run a mile around their yard or local green space. It doesn’t require equipment set up, helps children increase their fitness while improving concentration levels.
The DLR Go For Life Games were held in dlr Leisure Loughlinstown on Thursday 16th May for anyone over 55 years of age, linking in with the weekly activity sessions taking place in the four dlr Leisure centres across the County.
Ladies and gents from across the County came together to enjoy a morning of fun activities and light refreshments. The purpose of the games were to have a friendly inter-centre competition between our public dlr leisure centres and choose a team of 12 people to represent DLR at the National Go For Life Games in UCD on the 8th June.
