Irish Runner Events Postponed Until 2021


May 8th 2020

After assessing all scenarios in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Irish Runner 5k (May 17th), Irish Runner 5 Mile (June 13th), and Irish Runner 10 Mile (July 12th) will unfortunately not take place in 2020.

This will also result in all ‘Family Mile’ events due to take place in conjunction with the Irish Runner 5k, Irish Runner 5 Mile, and Irish Runner 10 Mile, being postponed until 2021.

The National 5k, 5 Mile, and 10 Mile Championships held in conjunction with the Irish Runner Race Series have been cancelled for 2020. A full refund will be issued in due course to all those participants who have entered through the National Championships portal. A pro rata refund will be given to those who have availed of the National Championships race bundle.

While we are prevented from holding these events this year, we are looking forward to providing you with an even bigger and better race series in 2021. Dates for the 2021 Irish Runner events will be confirmed later this year.

We are currently in the process of setting up ‘Virtual Irish Runner’ events which will take place over the coming months. These events will be free to enter, and we encourage everyone to take part.

Anyone already registered for any of the above recreational events will have the option to defer to 2021 which will include a special edition bandana (to be supplied at the 2021 event), or to receive a full refund. Those who have already purchased a t-shirt will have the order transferred to 2021 upon deferral, or cancelled in the event of a refund request.

Those looking for a full refund must contact with you order number  no later than June 5th. After this date, all remaining registrations will be deferred to 2021.

Please note that there is no need to get in touch with us if you have entered via the National Championships portal as all of these entries will be automatically refunded in due course.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
