Sandymount or ‘Spookymount’ is an ideal location being walking distance from the center of Dublin. And the course is laid out in long straight flat lines making it safer and more ‘racer’ friendly.

The Course

Start Location The course starts and finishes beside Clanna Gael Gaa club, Sandymount.

The Course is a single loop of 5km. The elevation does not go above 5metres. We would consider that very FLAT!! Could be a fast one…

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is there a water station on the course?

    Yes for the 10km only

    Can i get a refund or defer?

    Unfortulately not. Please note Once entry is received we incur material costs and admin costs so unfortunately we are unable to offer a refund or to defer to a future race. Transfer of your entry to another competitor is not permitted as it is you who have agreed to the terms and conditions of the event, provided emergency contact details, etc

    Can i swap my number?

    Unfortulately not. Please note we have your emergency contact details. Should anything happen to the person wearing that race number we will be calling the wrong next of kin.

    Can i show up and partake without entering?

    No. This race has a limit on numbers as the course can only safely hold so many. Therefore you will be in the way of people who have paid to enjoy this event. Plus if you have an accident we don’t know who you are.
