Pound the pavement at the Rathfarnham 5k Run, one of Dublin's fastest and most popular 5k races.
Held on the last Sunday in September every year since 1998, this great event attracts runners from all over Ireland, who come for the buzzing atmosphere, great prizes and chance to set a new personal best.
Lace up your sturdiest runners and head down to Springfield Avenue near the Tesco in Rathfarnham Shopping Centre, where you'll join the enthusiastic crowds ready to set off on the pretty downhill route along Dodder Park Road. Twists and turns will take you up hills and past parks and housing estates, where supporters will be cheering you on all the way to Rathfarnham Bridge.
This year's race is the 21st of its kind, and will include three juvenile races, too, so bring the young ones for a great family day out. With over €4000 in prizes and a €100 cash bonus for each course record broken (for the record, that's men (13.52), ladies (15.25) and junior under 20 (14.18)), there's no reason not to put a little pep in your step this autumn.
