v goal mileRun or walk your own GOAL Mile, wherever you can over the Christmas period to raise awareness and funds for GOAL.

For almost 40 years the GOAL Mile has seen tens of thousands of people run or walk a mile to raise funds for GOAL at Christmas. It has brought people together in villages, towns and cities across Ireland to help others. This year, the tradition has to change – but it doesn’t have to stop. It can’t stop.

Instead, we’re asking everyone to run or walk their own GOAL Mile, wherever they can. While most participants will complete their GOAL Mile between the 24th - 26th December as is the GOAL Mile tradition, you can choose to get out whenever is right for you over the Christmas period.

So, even though we have to stay apart, we can still stand together for the world’s most vulnerable people. 

Today, GOAL is active in thirteen different countries. We’re helping people whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by conflict, disease and climate change. So please remember them, register, and help keep the GOAL Mile running for many years to come.

  • Registration is online for 2020.
  • Each Adult and Child online entry comes with an exclusive GOAL Mile T-shirt.
  • Delivery costs included in ticket price.
  • Event packs are posted on a daily basis to ensure we can get T Shirts to participants as quickly as possible. However from 15th December An Post cannot confirm delivery before Christmas.
