Countdown to race day!

Inis Iron Meáin is the original Island road race which continues to impress runners year after year! This event has been so successful for the past 17 years that it has inspired many other communities to stage similar events. ‘Lá an 10K’ is a major social event for Inis Meáin, that sees the return of many familiar faces year after year.

Coláiste Naomh Eoin, the Island’s secondary school, is one of Ireland’s most successful small schools and this event is key to ensuring that the school continues to thrive thus ensuring the viability of this Atlantic gem. The course is exceptionally scenic with a choice between a 5km or 10km road race or a more difficult 12km route which includes a spectacular beach run along Ceann Gainnimh. Our 5K category was added to cater for both novice and senior interests.

All online entrants receive a goody pack which includes:

Race Number and Timing Chip

Sports garment

Inis Iron Meáin T-Shirt

Energy drink & energy bar

Next year’s Inis Iron Meáin will take place on Saturday the 4th of May 2024.
