Assembly will be at 1:30pm at the main stage for warm up and colour fun, with the run 🏃🏽 commencing at 2pm. There will be a €10 registration fee on the day with a free t-shirt ( not suitable for run as yellow barretstown top).
Dress code on day will be white as possible as to give the colour a beautiful canvas 😎. Refreshments and amusements afterwards followed by a colour party to finish.
Looking forward to seeing you all there for a day of fun and craic while raising much-needed funds for an amazing charity. Barretstown’s goal is to rebuild the lives of thousands of children affected by cancer and other serious illness, to experience the magic of Barretstown and enjoy being a child again
Barretstown is a residential camp for children with serious illness offering a range of adventures and challenging activities and supported behind the scenes by discreet medical attention and care always for free.
It is a break from hospitals, white coats and medical treatment and a chance for sick children to be children again: to have fun, make new friends and create new memories – all within the beautiful and magical setting of Barretstown castle in the Kildare countryside.
