On May 19th the magnificent Inch Beach will become the 77th venue in the Republic of Ireland to host a 5k parkrun! But what makes this one extra special is that it will be the first parkrun in the Republic to be run on a beach (Portrush parkrun was the first beach parkrun anywhere in the world, I think!).
All are welcome, you can run, jog, walk or volunteer. The run will take place every Saturday morning at 9:30 AM. It will be preceded by a short briefing.
If you want to have your time recorded, you should register (free) on parkrun.ie/register and bring a printed copy of your barcode with you every week. You don't have to be registered to run with us, but your time won't be recorded without a barcode.
A couple of other simple rules:
• Children under 11 years old must be within arms reach of an adult (i.e. Someone over 18) throughout the run.
• Children must be aged four years or older to register with parkrun.
• You can run with a dog, but only one dog per runner, and the dog must be on a short lead.
• Always be mindful of other users of the beach.
• Buggies are welcome.
After your parkrun, it's great to meet other park runners over coffee or breakfast, and we are lucky to have choice of The Strand Inn and Sammy's Café right at our finish line to enjoy!
We would like to acknowledge the following for their assistance in the start-up of this event:
