The Rathfarnham 5k Run 2017 will take place on Sunday 24th September at 10.00. The run takes place on one of the fastest 5k courses in Ireland, on the same course as 2016. Online entries  can now  be made on the Primo Events website. For just €20 and €1.40 registration fee you can set your 5k personal best time, receive a high quality distinctive Rathfarnham 5k tee shirt, shown below, and will be helping St. Luke’s Cancer Hospital in the process. Enter today to book your place.

Please note that for insurance purposes, we do not allow children under 15 run in the 5k. As we did in 2016, we will have three Juvenile races on the finishing straight of the main 5k race. They will be for boys and girls Under 12 (600m), Under 14 (800m) and Under 16 (1,000m). You can register your kids for these races on this website 6 weeks before the race date.

We would  like to thank Emerson as our main sponsor for the Rathfarnham 5k Run in 2017.  Our chosen charity for this year’s 5k is St. Luke’s Hospital, Rathgar. Rathfarnham WSAF Athletic Club look forward to working with Emerson and St. Luke’s to make the run a great success for all.
