Still time to sign up for the irishrail.ie Dunboyne 4 Mile Road Race & Fun Run – a short race with a big reputation and an ever popular event on the Irish road racing calendar.

This year’s race, the 42nd running of the event , sees irishrail.ie come on board as title sponsor.

Open to walkers, joggers and runners all of ages and standards, the flat and fast course – beginning and ending in Dunboyne town centre – offers participants an excellent chance of achieving personal bests.

At four miles, the organisers enthuse that this is also an ideal event for anyone new to fitness walking or running as the emphasis is on mass participation and a fun day out in a friendly and safe environment.

The day’s programme includes boys and girls races in the under-12 and under-15 categories. Entry for these events is just €2 and every finisher will receive a souvenir medal.

At the elite end of the field, there are cash prizes of €400 for the first man and woman home, and a €250 bonus for anyone who breaks the men’s (18.09) and women’s (20.00) course records currently held by Glynn Thomas (Coventry Godiva Harriers) and Rosemary Ryan (Bilboa AC).

Any profits from the event will go to the local Dunboyne AC and the Athletics Ireland Grassroots Athletics Fund – a new fund for emerging young talent nationwide.

The Dunboyne Run 4 Mile Road Race is hosted by the Dunboyne Athletic Club.
