There is no cost and no need to pre-register although we welcome runners to register with us so that we can plan to have runners for certain sections where public participations levels might be low. You can register on “Run with Us” on our website – www.rith.ie

If you want to lead the run, carry the official baton, you or your group can sponsor your own kilometre. See “Buy a Kilometre” on www.rith.ie for availability.

The run will be escorted by official support vehicles, stewards, an ambulance and in many places by the PSNI or An Garda Síochána
