Physical Challenges

We believe that anyone who runs, walks, swims, cycles or jumps for our athletes is amazing. There is an array of physical challenge events organised each year that you could play your part in. Events such as Hell and Back, the Camino, marathons and mini marathons across Ireland are all excellent challenge events and an opportunity for you to raise vital funds for Special Olympics Ireland.

Sign up today and achieve a personal goal while helping our athletes achieve their goals!
