On the same day there will also be ‘Jog for Jockeys’ 5k runs held at the Curragh & Leopardstown racecourses. Actor and ex-comedian, Paddy Courtney, will be supporting the fundraising event at The Curragh and musician Mick Foster of Foster & Allen will be in attendance at Leopardstown.

Last year over 780 people took part and raised €25,000 for the Injured Jockeys Fund.

The Injured Jockeys Fund is dedicated to helping injured jockeys when ever needed and has helped more than 1,000 jockeys over 40 years who have had their careers ended due to injury.

Organiser, Audrey O’Dwyer said: - “We are delighted to be running the ‘Jog for Jockeys’ again this year. Just like last year there will be a great atmosphere on the three courses and we really do want people to take part – you can walk or run it, it’s really all about participation!”
