East Mayo A.C has teamed up with Charlestown Sarsfields GAA to organize the first Colm Horkan Memorial Run on the 14th of February 2021.
This year's event will be held virtually with the hope of adding an annual race to the calendar from next year.

All funds raised will go to the development of the Colm Horkan Memorial Pitch and Community Walkways Project.
In a statement on their social media East Mayo A.C says:
‘The idea for this run stemmed from members of the Irish 62nd Infantry group based in Syria who are taking to the roads of their base in Syria to raise funds in Colms memory.’
They added, ‘We thank them for their generosity and efforts and look forward to running ‘virtually’ alongside them on the day.’
