Around four thousand people took part in the first ever Colm Horkan Run this weekend.

The Irish Army 62nd Infantry Group, Charlestown Sarsfields GAA and East Mayo Athletics Club were all involved in the Colm Horkan Memorial Run.

The late Detective Garda Colm Horkan was tragically killed in the line of duty in the early hours of June 18 last year.

To honour his memory, the 62nd Infantry Group currently based in Syria together with Charlestown Sarsfields GAA, East Mayo Athletics Club hosted the virtual event this weekend.

People from all over the country and world will remembered Colm by participating in a virtual run, walk, treadmill or cycle challenge varying in distance from a 5k, 10k to a half marathon.

Funds raised will go towards the Colm Horkan Memorial Pitch and community walkways project at Charlestown GAA.

Donal Healy from Charlestown GAA Club joined Michael D on Sunday Sport today to tell him more about the event.
