About Us

Sligo parkrun is a FREE weekly 5k event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:30am in Doorly Park, Cleveragh, Sligo.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, regardless of age or gender, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy the outdoors and get physically active. We want to encourage people to run, jog, walk and volunteer together – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee at Westeroast Coffee - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your parkrun that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an part of this community.

So whether you're a complete novice looking to get yourself started or a regular wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.

  • Sligo Sports and Recreation Partnership: Sligo is delighted to welcome parkrun and locally Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership, the Health Service Executive West and Sligo County Council are delighted to support the parkrun initiative. Providing quality participation opportunities in sport and physical activity which are inclusive of people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels remains our key focus and parkrun represents an ideal opportunity to achieve this objective and realise our goal of more people, more active more often.

Mass participation & community events are being heralded for their potential to get people started and help those who have committed to the change to stay moving. Through the HSE’s Get Ireland Active initiative we are a proud supporter of parkrun and firmly believe that such an event will serve as a fantastic enhancement to the local community.
