  • I will be on my honeymoon in Dublin that week and would like to run this 5k. First time in Ireland and would be helpful if any information could be sent to my email provided about the race. Is there a race day sign up and the easiest way to get there from the merrion hotel where we will be staying. Thank you.

    • Nick we would be delighted to have you run in our 5k. Enter on our website at and you are in. You can collect your number before the race up to 9.30 at Terenure College or the day beforehand at our Clubhouse, Main Street Rathfarnham Village. All details will be on our website. The race starts on Sunday at 10.00 and you will need to get a cab from the Merrion Hotel to get there on time. Cost around €20. E-mail me at if you have any questions. All the best, Peter J. Claffey
