Irish Heart Foundation

Why run for us?

Every year almost 9,000 people in Ireland die from heart disease or stroke. Hundreds of thousands of people in Ireland are currently living with heart conditions or the effects of a stroke.

Our mission is to eliminate preventable death and disability from heart disease and stroke and to support and care for those living with these life-changing conditions.

As Ireland's National Heart & Stroke Charity, we offer a range of services that aim to improve the quality of life and well-being of people after they have a heart event or stroke.  Running the Dublin Marathon for the Irish Heart Foundation will help fund the expansion of these services.


What Support you will receive

You will be part of our team and we will support you along your journey. We’ll send you out gear, help you where needed in your training, and look after you at the event – so you have a run to remember whilst helping to raise funds for vital services.
