      Hi Keith, if you wish to drive you will need to park in the Papal Cross Car Park and walk up to the race start point at the intersection between Chesterfield Ave and Furze Rd. Thank you.

      Hi Peter, To save on costs Aware does not provide a T-Shirt or goody bag to participants of the Christmas Run. There will be medals and there are significant prizes donated by Blanchardstown Shopping Centre for both male and female winners in each distance. Thank you for supporting people who experience depression.

    How do I register a family – 2 adults, a 13 yr old and a 10 yr old? How much will it cost to register?

    Regards,
    Conor.

      Hi Conor, under 16s go free but must be accompanied by an adult. So you only need to register the 2 adults at fitmagazine.ie/events/race/aware-christmas-run-2015

    Hi,
    I have registered for the 10k run at 10am on Saturday. I received my registration number in the post last week but I seem to have misplaced it. Is there a way for me to get a new number and chip before the race?

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks
    Kind regards,
    Jean

    Hi guys, I have not yet been posted my race number. Should everyone have been posted one? And if it does not arrive by tomorrow I assume I collect it on the morning of the race. I may not make it there before 9.15 – will that tent be open to get the number later than that? Thanks.

      Hi Ciara,just come along to the ‘pre-registered’ tent near the start line area. We’ll set you up with a race number.There is usually a queue by 9.15 but we’ll have you sorted in time for the 10am start.

      Hi Caroline, Yes, if you get to the late-registration tent at least a half hour before the race start we’ll have time to set you up with a race number. There is usually a queue for late registration so please try to get there as early as possible. Thank you.

    What a wet morning. Got soaked but surprised myself with the 71 minutes time. Never ran a 10K in my 66 years. Really chuffed and all in a good cause.

    My family and I weathered the 5k on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed every minute – are there any photos of the event?
