We will have the traditional Christmas break finishing on Wednesday night December 19th, our final league run in 2018, and the league will resume on Wednesday night January 2nd.

Entry will remain the same as previous years 2 Euro per night to members of the club and 3 Euro to non-members. As was the case last year there will be a once off payment on registration night of 5 Euro. 

This extra amount will be used to cover the cost of purchasing the numbers which are quite expensive but they are waterproof and have to be used each night for the duration of the league. 

This year for the first time also you can pay for the entire league with a once off payment and save yourself some money by doing so. For club members you can pay 30 euro (this includes the 5 euro once off number payment) and for non members you can pay a once off payment of 40 euro which also includes the 5 euro number payment charge.

The various division positions are made during the Christmas break and will be displayed weekly on our return night in January. 

Remember rule number one, no bib no run! Rule number 2, no watches. Rule number 3 no head phones or any music devices. 

With the huge increases in numbers in our recent leagues at the Friary we are expecting big numbers this year for the winter league. We urge all those who did come along to the Friary not to stop running now after making such great strides at the leagues but to continue by taking part in the winter league, you will be glad you did.

Notice : Run in the Dark Kerry - Wed 14th Nov 2018

This years Run in the Dark event is being held in multiple locations around the country including one on Inch beach in Co.Kerry.

From the organisers...Run in the Dark Kerry – Join us for a 5k run on 14th November
Run in the Dark Kerryy takes place on 14th  November 2018 at 8.00pm. Every November, as darkness sweeps the globe, thousands of people in 50 cities across the world will pull on their running shoes and red flashing armbands and hit the streets to Run in the Dark.
We know there are lots of running events out there, so why choose Run in the Dark?!

Apart from being a unique night run taking place in iconic locations around the world, there’s also an important cause fuelling this fundraising run. Run in the Dark is a global running movement helping to cure paralysis in our lifetime.

Run in the Dark is organised by the Mark Pollock Trust, named after blind Irish adventure athlete Mark Pollock. Unbroken by blindness in 1998, Mark Pollock suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury in 2010 when he fell from a second story window that left him paralysed. As Mark strives to walk again, his most complex journey is ahead of him – to find a cure for paralysis.

By taking part in Run in the Dark you are enabling ground-breaking collaborations and research which could change the lives of millions of paralysed people around the world.

Every donation, every step, every study, moves us towards a cure for paralysis and enabling people to walk again.

Sign up at

There are a limited number of places available so make sure to sign up early so you don't miss out!

Run in the Dark Kerry will take place on Inch beach.

This year’s Kerry run will be championed by Mike O’Shea. Mike O Shea is a Kerry based adventurer with a passion for the great outdoors and also for fundraising for great causes. New owner of WK Fitness gym in Dingle, Mike is delighted to help bring Run in the Dark to Kerry.

Please aim to arrive at 19.30 (7.30pm) so that we can ensure everyone will receive their flashing armband and buff and have a group photo before we go running!
