Athletics Ireland and the event organiser Dublin City Harriers wish to apologise to all participants for the unforeseen circumstances that led to last Sunday’s Great Ireland Run (incorporating the National 10k Championship) being less than the specified distance.

Athletics Ireland have made the decision to award medals and placings in all categories for the National 10k Championship. We note that this decision was made following robust discussion and consultation. Note the race result will be recorded with an asterisk next to all references to highlight the shorter distance of the event.

Additionally, the 465 registered starters from the National 10k Championship will also be offered a complimentary place in any one of the upcoming 2023 National 5k, 5-mile, or 10-mile road race Championships. All 10k National Championship participants will be personally contacted by email to advise of this action.

We thank all runners impacted by this matter for their patience and understanding.

Queries from those participants who took part in the Great Ireland Run, but were not part of the National Championships can be sent via email HERE.
