The Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind are our chosen charity for the Rathfarnham 5k 2023.

The Rathfarnham 5k 2023 will include the second running of the Dublin Championships 5k Road Race. This is restricted to runners from Dublin Clubs. Dublin Championship medals will be up for grabs for the first three (Ladies and men) home from Dublin Clubs, along with the first three in the Age Categories Over 35 to Over 65. Three team medals can also be won by Dublin Clubs in the race – Overall Dublin Championships team race with 4 to score for men and women, Over 35 – 4 to score for men and women, and Over 50 – 4 to score for men and 3 for women.

In addition, Individual and Team prizes will be awarded in the overall race which is open to all finishers. The customary Rathfarnham 5k tee shirt will also be given to the first 1,000 who pick up their number at registration.

The minimum age to run the Rathfarnham 5k is 15. Juvenile runners can only run in the Juvenile race they have entered for and not the Rathfarnham 5k. Parents and responsible adults must not allow their children run in the 5k with a Juvenile entry or transfer their number to a child to allow them run. This is to ensure we have a correct list of registered competitors for emergency response and results calculation purposes. In addition children seen on the startline will be taken out of the race by our Stewards.
