All of the details and venues for the GOAL Mile this Christmas

Why not get out and run some of that turkey off while also contributing to charity

Dublin footballer Jack McCaffrey and Leinster and Ireland number eight Jamie Heaslip launched this year’s GOAL Mile.

There are more than 130 GOAL Miles around the country this year between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Now in its 36th year, the GOAL Mile is held in villages, towns and cities all over Ireland every Christmas and is one of the country’s largest and longest-running annual fundraising events. The concept is simple: people run or walk a Mile and contribute whatever they can to GOAL on the day.
