      Hi Joe,
      When you register for the Christmas Run, a race number and sponsorship card will be posted out to you if you ticked that you need one. Some people fundraise online using mycharity.ie instead. To save on costs Aware does not provide a t-shirt for the Christmas Run. Thanks for your interest.Aware

    I was wondering if it’s possible for my niece to do the run with me she’s 10 but to register you need to be over 18. Would it be possible for her to still run with me?

There will be limited parking available in the park such as the Papal Cross Car Park however we are advising participants where possible to use public transport. Thank you. Aware
