Relay Categories

The relays will take place in the Curragh with a mass start at 11.30

If you need to register on the day, registration will close at 11, so we urge you to come early please. 

This is a “University relay” open to everybody. You will run with people
who went to the same 3rd Level Institution as you (of any age!) or as a
non-university team. We’re encouraging a mix of age groups!

The Relay Categories are as follows:

Men's Elite (3 Long Courses)
Women's Elite (3 Long Courses)
Junior Elite ( 2 Medium & 1 short)

Adhoc (Short, Medium and Long)
Short Adhoc (2 mediums & 1 short)

Long Course: 5.4 km
Medium Course: 4 km
Short Course: 2.5km

Don’t worry if you don’t have a team! We will organise teams for solo entries.
Everybody will get to run!

Entry Form

The pre-entry form is first and foremost for those availing of the weekend price.

Please fill out the entry form, answering all portions. If you have queries, email us at

Pre-Entry Form

  • SI Card Number is required only for Sunday's event as for the Relay, SI cards will be pre-assigned. 
  • The idea of the relays is that you would run with people who went (or go to) the same university as you - if you do not know who went to your university, we can easily group you with people who did. In the case of non-Irish universities, we can also group you with other non-Irish university alumni. We hope that it will give everyone the chance to mix with people who perhaps aren't in the same local club or who they would not normally run with!


There will be a combined price system for pre-entry, i.e. a weekend price, which includes:

  • Entry for both days
  • An anniversary weekend T-shirt
  • Social event in Trinity with food and drink
Full package fees:
Adult: €28
Student/Child/OAP/Unemployed: €25
Children UNDER 16: €20

This can be prepaid or paid on the day. Please indicate whether you would prefer to pre-pay on your entry form.

For those who would like to enter for the events only or for just one event, prices are as follows:

Saturday Relay: €5 per person or €15 per team. 

Sunday, Leinster League Event: 
Adult €8
Student/Junior/OAP/Unemployed €5
