The 2021 Dublin Irish Festival 5K presented by IGS Energy will be held on Thursday, August 5, in Historic Dublin to kick off the 2021 Dublin Irish Days. This year's event will be limited to 1,000 registrants, however virtual will continue to be an option as well. Unfortunately, there will be no Kids dash race this year, but the virtual 5K option is still available for participants of all ages. 

All participants will receive a quality event t-shirt and a finisher medal.

If conditions related to the pandemic improve, additional spots may be made available. If the 2021 Dublin Irish Festival 5k cannot be held in person due to health restrictions in place, all in-person participants will be transferred to a virtual experience.
