ABOUT THIS EVENT

The 2024 Dublin Irish Festival 5K and Kids Dash presented by IGS Energy will be held on Thursday, August 1, in Historic Dublin to kick off the 2024 Dublin Irish Festival weekend. This event will be limited to 1,000 registrants in the 5K and 75 registrants in each of our age-specific Kids Dash races. All races sold out in 2023, so don’t delay and miss your chance on the fun!

The event features an out-and-back course through Historic Dublin with a finish line full of spectators, followed by the post-race party and concert until 9 PM!

All 5K participants receive the following with their registration:

  • High-quality event t-shirt (unisex)
  • Official finisher medal
  • One-day ticket to the Dublin Irish Festival 
  • One (1) beer from our beverage sponsor (must be 21 and over) 

Once you cross the finish line, the celebration continues at the post-race party and concert! This celebration will take place in the parking lot behind Starbucks in Historic Dublin (13 S. High St.). There is no gear check at this event and IDs are required to receive/purchase beer after the race.

Start the Festival weekend early with drinks, food, and Irish music! Stay tuned for band and vendor information!
