INIS IRON MEÁIN 10K – Saturday 16/03/2013. Paddy’s Weekend on the Aran Islands!


A 10k which follows a maze of narrow winding roads in spectacular surroundings with an unrivalled post race experience! This unique island 10K walk/run is now in its ninth year attracting hundreds of participants annually which includes top athletes from all over the country. There are two routes to choose from which cater for both Novice and Senior interests.

This event affords an opportunity to raise much needed funds for the islands secondary school Coláiste Naomh Eoin, ensuring both the continued development and viability of this independent island community.


On Saturday, take the morning at your leisure before the 10K gets underway at 1:30. But the fun doesn’t stop there! That night, join in the fancy dress party as our local ‘DJ Willie in the Mix’ keeps us boogying until the small hours of the morning.


This year, why not make a weekend of it? It is only on one day in the year, St Patrick’s Day, and only on this small remote island of Inis Meáin, the central island of the Aran islands, that you can experience the game of ‘Cead’ – a sport which really has to be seen to be understood. Celebrate with the winning team in the pub afterwards as the evening’s festivities get underway!
