Supermac’s team up with Salerno for Annual SuperRun

The Salerno 5k SuperRun will take place on May 9th with students, family members, staff and friends of Salerno invited to walk, jog or run the 5k route, all in aid of a new Sports Hall for Salerno Secondary School.

Now in its second year, the success of the event has been greatly helped by the enthusiasm shown by the students and the Salthill community. The announcement of Supermac’s coming on board with Salerno as title sponsor has given the event a massive boost, helping to highlight the school’s ongoing Sports Hall fundraising campaign.

Speaking recently at the announcement, Supermac’s Managing Director Pat McDonagh said “Supermac’s are proud to sponsor Salerno’s 5k SuperRun. It is great to see all the students actively training to either run, jog or walk the 5k. The SuperRun is a wonderful fundraiser to help build Salerno’s Sports Hall, which of course will be a fantastic platform where the students can develop their sporting talents and confidence.”

Salerno School staff, students and their supportive families have been working tirelessly to make the New Sports Hall a reality in the coming years. A range of successful fundraising initiatives have been taking place recently, including the phenomenal Strictly for Salerno dance event, the weekly 50:50 Draw and an online Art Sale of works donated by supporters.

Speaking at the launch of the SuperRun, Sr. Gerarda Lawler, Salerno School Principal, said, “The SuperRun is a fun event for all and we welcome the wider Salerno community to come along for a really good time on Friday May 9th. Sport and exercise is an important part of student well being and the new Sports Hall will really enhance its role at Salerno. We really appreciate the support we have been receiving from local businesses and especially appreciate the generosity of SuperRun main sponsor Pat McDonagh of Supermac’s.”

Those wishing to take part can register on-line at or from 12 noon on the day at Salerno. The SuperRun starts at 1pm from Salerno gate and you can walk, jog or run the 5k.
