Aware Christmas 5k

This year we're going Virtual!


Event Description:

Update 10-12-2020:

There has been a fantastic response to the Aware Christmas 5K already, thank you to everyone who is getting involved. We are in the grateful position of having more people signed up than expected and so we had to place a second order for our bespoke medals. As soon as they arrive from our supplier, they will be despatched, but for those of you who registered after 9th December, it may be mid-late January before they arrive in your post box. We will get them out to you as soon as possible! Thank you for supporting Aware and we look forward to seeing all your photos on social media this weekend #AwareChristmas5K.

The Aware Christmas 5k is taking place from Fri-Sun, 11th - 13th December 2020. As we are going virtual this year, you do not need to travel anywhere to take part. Take part wherever you are, in your own city, town or village.


It doesn’t matter what level of fitness you have. You can walk, jog or run the 5km distance. Go in your thermals or in your Santa hat, it's 5k your way!


There is a lot of research that shows the positive link between movement and fresh air for your physical and mental health. Get moving for mental health.


Your participation will help ensure we can continue to provide vital, free mental health supports for individuals and families impacted by depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. As well as free wellbeing programmes for adults and senior cycle students nationwide.
