Please see Meath LSP’s planned programmes below. All programmes will be delivered whilst adhering to current public health guidelines.


Virtual 2k Turkey Trot

Charity begins in your community…make your donation count locally this Christmas!

The Local Sports Partnerships (LSP’s) in Louth & Meath have combined forces to host the inaugural virtual 2k Turkey Trot in aid of the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP). This worthy charity does tremendous work with those who need it and has branches in most local communities across the counties of Louth and Meath.

2020 has brought many challenges to our lives but has had huge impact on local charities and those who they work with, none more so than SVP. Christmas will be different for everyone this year but for some it will be a lot harder. Poverty is never easy to confront and yet, every Christmas it is impossible to ignore. Louth & Meath LSP’s are encouraging everyone to do their part in tackling the issue of poverty in your local area, to ensure that the contribution you make to a charity benefits those in your local community.

You are encouraged to take part in the inaugural virtual 2k Turkey Trot on Saturday 2nd January. All proceeds will benefit the local SVP areas in Louth & Meath. Registration cost is €5 per person. You can do your 2k around your house, in your local park, at your local pitch, wherever you choose! Get your family & friends involved. Get out, get active, you’ll not only feel great for being out and about but also feel good about giving something to a great local cause.

Prizes for the most creatively dressed on the day. Capture your participation, use the hashtag #2kturkeytrot and tag us on social media:
