Niamh O'CeallaighApr 12 2022, 8:58am****IMPORTANT RACE INFO****

The Killiney Hill Relay is a great fun event. Teams are selected at random on the night so it is a great way to get to know new people.

Registration is located in the main Dalkey/Killiney Hill car park. It is 15 min walk from Dalkey DART station and within 5 minutes of a bus stop of the 59 bus

Registration will be open from 6.30 - 7.10pm. The draw of teams will take place immediately after registration closes.

There will be a kids run suitable for age 3 and up. It will have almost continuous marking and will be about 500m in length. It will start at 7:20pm before the main race.

Andy McGeadyApr 12 2022, 12:27pmThanks Niamh - is there a route of the race available? Just curious which paths it uses. Thanks.
Niamh O'CeallaighApr 12 2022, 1:04pmHi Andy,
I am unable to update any of the race details to the race page but will add a map asap.
The route basically starts from the carpark and goes up to the obelisk via Daedalus, then decend down through the trees to the grass near the carpark. Then around the path overlooking the sea. When it finally pops out on the road, it is a quick left up the steps to the castle and then back to the start through the trees.

Due to ongoing issues with the IMRA website, the below registration guidelines will apply for the Killiney Hill Relay on 13th April 2022 only.

Registration will be “on the day” and CASH ONLY.

When registering, you will need to make a donation (in lieu of entry fee) to Enable Ireland and provide your name and IMRA membership number.

The kiddies race was a great idea and looked so much fun. My little 'uns will definitely be there for the next one!
