10 Dec 2023


Countdown to race day!

Kilcullen GAA’s “Run Run Rudolph” Christmas event is back for 2023 but is bigger & better – we’ve added a 10 KM event (2 laps of our 5K course) plus the 5 KM Run & 2.5 K Family Walk/Run events.

Run Run Rudolph 2023 will take place on Sunday the 10th of December 2023 starting & finishing at our clubhouse.

Again, this event is a fundraiser supporting the addition of 3 Hurling & Football playing pitches & other infrastructure at our Kilcullen clubhouse, all part of our “Field of Dreams” plans.

The event is open to athletes, fun runners, joggers and walkers.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times & controlled.

All entrants will get Christmas bells with their race numbers to create a lovely Christmas atmosphere as they circuit Kilcullen town.

Prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd Male & Female runners in both 10 & 5 KM events as well as spot prizes for the Family Walk/Run event. We’ll also have prizes for the best fancy-dress costumes.

Online entry closes at midnight on Friday the 8th of December, late entries will be available the evening of Saturday the 9th of December at the Clubhouse & limited late entries on Sunday morning (but only before 10 AM).

Note: Registration may close earlier if we reach our numbers limit before this date.

This year we are offering a postal service (for an additional fee). Our partner Pop-Up Races will post your event numbers to you approximately 1 week before the event thus making your event morning easier & stress free.

Depending on numbers selecting this option – we will offer number collection at the Clubhouse on the evening of Saturday December 9th & Sunday December 10th (but only before 10 AM).

The event will start at 11 AM with the 5KM & 10KM events departing 1st to the sound of Chuck Berry’s Run Rudolph Run. The 2.5 KM Family Walk/Run will depart shortly afterwards again to the sound on Run Rudolph Run.

Both the 5 & 10 K events will be Chip-timed. Prize giving will take place at the finish line area after the race where Christmas goodies will be on offer to all participants.

Last year we enjoyed a great Christmas atmosphere at the clubhouse & we plan to add to that this year – Santa has pencilled us in again & we hope will surprise us with a visit if time allows with his busy schedule.
