Glenville to Croke Park Challenge

The club are delighted to announce a 252km virtual Glenville to Croke Park Challenge, where you will virtually walk, jog, run or cycle from Glenville to Croke Park. You will navigate 252km over 12 weeks (or less). The first adventurers will kick off on the 1st May 2022 and finishing on the day of the All-Ireland football final on 24th July. 

Last year's challenge successfully raised money for our AstroTurf. 

This year we are raising money towards the installation of floodlights on our pitch and the Rainbow Club Cork, Centre for Autism. 

You can submit your distances daily and track your progress via the MyRunResults website and for those that are more competitive you can keep an eye on the leader board too. 


Feel free to post pictures along the way to Instagram, Twitter & Facebook and let us know how you are getting on. You download a partipants certificate when you finish – ‘BEST OF LUCK’
