Docklands 5k Race Map

The race will be held on Thursday, June 28th, starting at 7:30pm. The race starts on the South Docks at Lime Street which is very near to the Samuel Beckett Bridge - that's the one almost opposite the Convention Centre. From there you will head towards the City Centre all the way to the Matt Talbot Bridge which you will cross over to the North Quay. From there you will run all the way down to the 3 Arena where you will loop back down the North Quay again towards the Matt Talbot Bridge. There you will cross the Bridge again and back to the South Quay. From there you will run back past the start line. The finish line is approx. 500 metres beyond the start line and you will finish at Sir John Rogerson's Quay. You are then just a small stroll away from the bag drop area in Grand Canal Square and that well deserved night out!!

Please stay in touch on Facebook and Twitter as some road works in the area may result in very slight changes to the route. We will let you know well in advance if that is the case.
