In memory of Ashling 

No one should be afraid to go for a run. The Sanctuary Runners, like the rest of the country, are absolutely heartbroken and horrified by the awful crime that took place in Tullamore on Wednesday, January 12th. Our love and support to Ashling Murphy’s family, friends and pupils.



The Sanctuary Runners enable Irish residents to run alongside, and in solidarity with, asylum seekers and refugees in Direct Provision thereby fostering friendship, positivity and respect while bringing greater awareness to the migration system. A non-profit, and multi-award-winning movement we use running to build sustainable bridges between communities and to show that we are all equal.
