Please Support Us

  • By supporting Jog for Jockeys, you are supporting the bravest men and women in Irish sport. Every time they mount a horse to provide you and I with the enjoyment - the buzz and thrill - we all get from racing, they are putting their bodies on the line. What other sportsperson has a minimum of two ambulances and a doctor travelling behind them as they participate? Our riders travel at 35-40 miles per hour on a half ton of horsepower with the risk of falling at anytime from a height of three metres. Not only do they need your support - THEY DESERVE IT

  • The Injured Jockeys is such an important charity which supports our jockeys while they are out of action so I hope to see lots of runners, joggers and walkers at The Curragh Racecourse on Saturday September 1st.
