The first Springtime event in the Great Run calendar is just around the corner, so here’s the lowdown on what you can expect at Garmin Great Ireland Run on Sunday 15 April.

There’s a run for everyone

From the running pros, to running newbies and kids too, there’s something for everyone to get involved with. The 10k and 5k are the main events and are achievable for runners of any fitness level whatever your reason for running. Kids can get involved with the Junior and Mini events too, taking in some of the same route as the longer distances. And if you want to see some of the pros in action, the AAI National 10k Championships are part in the main 10k event, so you could run the 5k and stick around to cheer them and the scores of other runners on!


Run in Europe’s largest urban park

Garmin Great Ireland Run takes place in Europe’s largest urban park and the course takes in some historic landmarks. Run past the Phoenix Monument, the Papal Cross and get a glimpse of the Magazine Fort as you make your way across to the Furry Glen and then back towards Chesterfield Avenue for your big finish.


You could be a county champion

Garmin Great Ireland Run 10k is home of the All Ireland County Challenge where runners can represent their county. The overall winner is determined by the fastest average time of each county’s competitors and the victorious team win the Ronnie Delany Trophy. No county has ever done the double but could 2017 champions Donegal be the first with a repeat win in 2018?
