Online registration for the Aware Christmas 5 Mile Run has now closed but that doesn’t mean you’ve missed out completely! Late registration will be available on the morning of the run from 7.30am to 9.15am. This costs €25 per person (see where the money goes) and will take place on Acres Road near the start line. See race map (opens in new window) for the exact location.
A few other notes about the arrangements on the day for everyone taking part:
It is important to be on time if the run is to be a success (we have the use of the route for a limited amount of time due to the road works and traffic restrictions involved). The run will start at 10am sharp!
