The IGS Energy/Dublin Irish Festival 5K + Kids Dash is now VIRTUAL!

Good afternoon!

We are reaching out today to notify you that the 2020 IGS Energy/Dublin Irish Festival 5K + Kids Dash has become a virtual event, happening July 30 – August 2, 2020. The safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. The challenges of adhering to social-distancing guidelines, assuring fiscal responsibility, and maintaining the highest quality entertainment experience also factored heavily into the decision.

Virtual event participants will receive a participant medal as well as a custom digital race bib and finisher certificate for sharing on social media. The price of the new virtual 5K event is $20 (Kids Dash price is unchanged), a reduction from the price of the in-person 5K event. The Kids Dash price is unchanged. As current registrants, you have the following options and can make your choice on the race site https://runsignup.com/dif5k:

  • Stay in the event, no refund with the additional paid going to the Dublin Food Pantry
  • Stay in the event with a partial refund to reduce the total paid to $20 (refunds will be processed in bulk on/about July 10)
  • Receive a full refund (refunds will be processed in bulk on/about July 10)

Please make your choice by June 30. All those who do not choose an option by this time will remain in the event and will have the additional amount paid above $20 donated to the Dublin Food Pantry.

Medals will be available for pick up beginning Wednesday, July 29, at Columbus Running Company Dublin store located at 6465 Perimeter Dr., Dublin, OH 43017.

The 2020 campaign theme, “Sláinte,” Irish for “Cheers, to Your Health,” is more meaningful now than ever. While we certainly look forward to seeing you all in person again in 2021, we can't wait to celebrate with you virtually this year!

Sincerely,

The IGS Energy/Dublin Irish Festival 5K + Kids Dash committee
