Dundalk 10k Goes Virtual for 2020

First and foremost we hope that you are all keeping safe and well. We thank you for your continued support for the DkIT Dundalk 10k and for your patience as we assessed all options available to us.

Due to current circumstances we have had to make the difficult decision to change our 10k to a Virtual Event for 2020.

All participants who have already registered are automatically registered for the Virtual Run.

Charity Organisations

This year’s chosen charities are ‘Rape Crisis North East’ and ‘Cara Cancer Support’. Proceeds from the race will enable us to support these two wonderful and very worthy local charities.
