Run Mount Juliet

13th February

The Run Mount Juliet is back for its fourth year in Kilkenny on 13th February. This event offers a Half Marathon, 10K and a 2K Fun Run.

Last year there was approximately 200 Half Marathon finishers and 400 10K finishers.


This is a pretty tough course, but also very scenic. Set in and around the grounds of the beautiful Mount Juliet, the Half Marathon course is two laps of the 10K course. The 10K course is pretty hilly, so double that for the half and you have yourself a real test!

A lot of people look for "a flat and fast" course, however you need the tough ones to improve, and this is one of those.


It seems that the organisers have taken feedback on the registration prices over recent years and brought the prices down. Entry for the Half Marathon is now €35; the 10K is €25; and the Fun Run is €10. You receive a technical t-shirt with your entry (although I'd imagine not for the Fun Run).
