The 2016 race (Thursday, July 14th, starting at 7:30pm) will be a 5k race run FOR runners BY runners. Yes, the runners from Crusaders Athletic Club are now organising the new improved Docklands 5k race with the help of the generous sponsorship of many companies located in the Docklands area led by our principal sponsor Aercap
Runners know what runners want from road races so why not run in a race which is organised by runners themselves??
Entry is open to all runners either in Business teams of three OR If you have not got a team then individual entries will also be accepted.
Team categories are Male only Teams, Female only Teams and Mixed Teams. Prizes for all three categories will be on offer. And then afterwards why don't you make it a social night out with your team???
The race will be held on Thursday, July 14th, 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!!
