Leopardstown Racecourse to host annual AWARE Christmas 5k

Challenge yourself to a 5K at your own pace in support of Aware’s vital mental health services.

Lace up your runners and kick off the festive season at the 18th annual Aware Christmas 5K on Saturday the 9th December at its new home in Leopardstown Racecourse, from 9.30am. Grab your family, friends, colleagues (and your best Christmas outfit) and join the fun!

With festivities for all the family, hourly races for adults (over 16s), kids’ races and play area, live entertainment, festive food, and refreshments – this is a day for everyone!

This is a 5K at your own pace – running, jogging, walking – everyone will receive a participant’s medal. Our chipped and timed race will start at 9.30am, but if you’re less concerned about the exact time of your 5K, you can choose from hourly options thereafter. Please select what time you plan to take part when registering. Our fun 5Ks will start at 10.30am, 11.30am and 12.30pm.

We encourage everyone to add to the festivities with Christmas jumpers, accessories, and even elf outfits!

We directly support up to 40,000 people each year through our support and education services. We can’t do this without your help! By taking part, you’re helping to bring attention to the important topic of mental health and raise vital funds for our services.

So, dig out those runners, find your favourite festive attire, and register today.

Can’t join in person? You can also take part virtually and we’ll post out your medal to you!
