MSB St Patrick’s 5k Race

1 February 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

MSB St Patrick’s 5k Race

MSB St Patrick’s 5k Race gives you the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of great running legends. Make your own history on the official European Cross-Country course where Jakob Ingebrigtsen from Norway won gold, where Irish Olympians Fionnuala McCormack and Sarah Healy have battled and where our own Scott Fagan won a famous silver for Ireland.

The new MSB festival race will take you around the prestigious Sport Ireland National Cross-Country track in Abbottstown where the European Cross-Country Championships were held last December.

The races cater to all ages and abilities and the staggered times ensure a fun and lively atmosphere, where participants and spectators will line the route to cheer you on!

Families can enter our Fittest Family 1.5km Competition as well as a junior 3.5km and adult 5km race length. Post race, participants can enjoy festival fun and there are prizes a plenty to be won.

So this St. Patrick’s weekend, can you avoid the snakes, the mud and the elbows and power across that finish line?

You’d never know which Celtic legend you might be racing with so watch this space!

Family 1.5k – 50euro  (entry to Fittest Family 1.5k fun run plus option to take part in 3.5k or 5k races)
