We want our runners in top condition, so we’ll have a group warm-up at the start area at 20:50pm. Get ready to stretch your legs, and your smiles.
There most certainly will! We’ll mind your Night Run bag – free of charge – at a baggage drop (Location Mayor Square, outside National College of Ireland). Please keep in mind, this is only for your Night Run bag though, so pack light.
Without question. Your safety comes first: clearly marked medical facilities in place on the route if you need any assistance. There will also be a fully equipped medical centre at the finish line to address any trouble you or anyone you know may be experiencing.
We have teamed up again with Q-Park who have offered the following exclusive discounted rate for race participants. A lot of streets will be closed for the runners, so finding a place to park will be a bit harder than usual. If you have to drive, that’s OK; there will be on-street parking outside of the race route on Sunday 28th April, but jumping on the Luas or Dart, or using Dublin Bus would be ideal.

It sure is. After all, checking your time is half the fun. The chip will be contained within your race bib number, and the results will be posted online shortly after the race.
We all know the feeling. It’s Monday morning, you race out the door, sit down at your desk, and realise you left your stopwatch at home. Complete nightmare. You don’t have to worry about that with the Night Run: A link to race results will be posted online after the event. Just keep an eye on our social media channels for updates, check your time, and share it with the world.
The first step is to sit tight. In just a bit, you’ll receive an email confirming your entry into the race. We’ll send a second email during the week of the event which will include your official race number and further details about race pack collection (race bib number, and top) and race weekend itself.

If you opted to not have your Packet posted. You’ll need to register and collect your race pack at Packet Pickup (Location & Times TBC)

After that … all you need to do is show up, stretch, take to the streets, and have fun!
