AXA Raheny 5 Mile

31st January

One of the finalists in our Race Awards, under the "Short Distance Race of the Year" category, the AXA Raheny 5 Mile is on Sunday 31st January. An incredibly highly rated race, this attracted around 2,500 runners last year. This is the 32nd annual running of the event.


Due to road works on the coast road, there is a slight change to the route this year. Just after the 3 mile mark, participants will turn left into St. Anne's Park and continue for approximately 1 and half miles in the park. They will then emerge on to the old course on All Saints Road, approximately 900metres from the finish.

Actually, this new route will make the course a little flater than before, so perhaps a new course record will be on the cards (as well as the masses, a lot of the top runners show up here).


The cost of this race is €20 plus €1.40 booking fee and you can register on the Primo Events Page.

What you get

As well as a great race, and a huge reception at the finish line, this has an excellent goodie bag for all entrants.
