The 2016 Maynooth 10k will take place on Sunday 24th April, the 100th anniversary of the 24th April 1916 Rebellion. The Maynooth Education Campus Parent Teacher Association invite past and present pupils, their families and the general public to celebrate this historic anniversary and the advancements in education over the last 100 years by taking part in our 10K or Family 5K fundraising event. All participants will receive a Rebellion Run medal. Since 1916 Educational facilities in Maynooth have developed to include second level, and a third level University, together catering for almost 14,000 pupils and students, a 10,000% increase. In association with the Maynooth 1916 Centenary Committee the Maynooth Education Campus PTA with the assistance of Maynooth Fire brigade and Height for Hire will decorate Courtyard Square with almost one mile of Tricolour bunting. At the medal presentation ceremony members of Maynooth Comhaltas and musicians from Maynooth Education Campus will play traditional music that was popular during 1916.
