Kerry Crusaders exists with two aims:
- To promote and enjoy a fit and healthy lifestyle through walking, jogging and running.
- To raise money for disadvantaged children in North Kerry.
Based in Listowel, County Kerry, We’re not a hardcore athletics club. We welcome people all ages and all abilities. Some of us run marathons, others enjoy the chance to get out of the house for an hour, stroll around the town, get some fresh air and catch up on the gossip with friends.
We are the sister group of the Clare Crusaders. Clare Crusaders was founded by Howard Flannery to help kids with special needs in County Clare. Howard’s energy and drive led to the establishment of a clinic in Barefield that now helps over 200 kids weekly. It is completely funded by fundraising through walking running and cycling.
Sadly Howard lost his life while training. He paid the ultimate price for a cause he so strongly believed in. Today his crusade continues as strong as ever in Clare and we in Kerry are doing our very best to help kids with special needs in the Kingdom.
We welcome new people all the time and love to get people moving in the right direction to help them make a change for themselves and others.
We generally meet in the car park outside Listowel Community Centre every Monday and Wednesday evening, and Saturday morning. Times can vary so check the homepage of this website for details
No need to be shy, we’d love to see you.
