We would like to thank Ballybunion Sea & Cliff Rescue for all their help over the years along with you, who have either run or walked, what we believe is one of the most spectacular courses in the country.
Ballybunion Sea & Cliff Rescue is entirely made up of volunteers who will again provide their expertise and equipment to ensure the health and safety of all participants. In return, all profit generated by runballybunion will be given to Ballybunion Sea & Cliff Rescue.
All entrants who register prior to Feb 28th 2021 will get a special commemorative Tec T-Shirt and Medal.
There are limited quantities of T-Shirts & Medals.
Because of the fantastic support from both runners & walkers over the last 10 years we have no option to limit the number of entries for the 12th anniversary.
Chip timing will be provided for both the Half Marathon and 10k events.
Kiddies Race : Start time 12 noon
Half Marathon & 10k Race : Start time 1:00 PM
Trophy & Prizes
For those who compete to win, the Eamon Fitzmaurice Perpetual Trophy is awarded to the first half marathon competitor to cross the finish-line.
Prizes will also be awarded separately to men and women overall and in the over 40s category. However, each competitor will be able to access their personal race time online within hours of completing the race so whether you place or not, you can always check if you’ve out-paced yourself.
Kids Fun Run
In our efforts to make this a fun-filled day for the whole family, we also host a 1 kilometre kids race that includes a lap around the town of Ballybunion.
