IGS Energy/Dublin Irish Festival 5K and Kids Dash - VIRTUAL!

Thu July 30 - Sun August 2 RaceJoy Ready

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 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!

Medal pickup

Medals can be picked up at Columbus Running Company's Dublin location (6465 Perimeter Dr 43016) during normal store hours (weekdays 10a-8p, Saturday 10a-6p, Sunday 12p-4p) Wednesday, July 29, 2020, through August 2, 2020. No medals will be mailed. Your digital bib number is available for download/sharing via your RunSignup profile.
