A huge thanks to everyone who has supported the GOAL Mile in the past. Your generosity and passion will help to transform the lives of millions of people across the world and we are so grateful for this support.

Details of the 2021 GOAL Mile will be announced soon.

GOAL Mile History

GOAL Mile was established in 1982 when our late chairperson and international athlete, Noel Carroll, asked local people and their families to run a mile at The Phoenix Park on Christmas morning for GOAL.

Much to everyone's delight, more than 250 people turned up. The following year saw the event move to Belfield, University College Dublin. It is now one of the most popular and longstanding fundraisers in Ireland! Last year, more than 150 GOAL Mile events took place across the country.

We want to say Thank you to every single person who has organised, ran or walked a mile for GOAL. We hope to see you again this year!
