5k parkrun across Ireland


This weekend 5k parkruns will start to return across Ireland, and we’re delighted to announce that the remainder of events can reopen from Saturday 25 September.


With the change in government guidelines we are delighted to announce that all 5k parkrun events can reopen across Ireland from Saturday 25 September.


This weekend (Saturday 11 September) will see 48 5k events starting, and we can’t wait to see Saturday morning communities reunited once again. Please check local event pages and social media for further information. There are still currently restrictions on gathering numbers, so if your event is not restarting on Saturday 11 September please do be patient.


The restart of 5k events also means that children aged 11-14 years will once again be able to log their walks, jogs and runs at junior parkruns across the country.


All of our teams are also welcoming new volunteers. There’s no experience required, and a huge variety of roles to choose from. It’s a great way to meet new people, and reconnect with your local community. No training is needed, a member of the event team will just show you what to do on the day. All you need to do is get in touch with the team using the event contact details on their web page, they’ll take it from there.


You can also keep an eye on their social media for volunteering opportunities, and sign up to volunteer emails.


We can’t wait to welcome you all back to parkrun.


Happy walking, jogging, running and volunteering.
