For 2021 we cannot be certain of a mass participation road race on the scale of our usual 10k, and for that reason we will go virtual with our 10k on the May bank holiday weekend, and keep it open for the month of May.
This year we will appeal to the people of Drogheda and the athletics community worldwide to support us by being part of our virtual event over the May Bank Holiday weekend.

We plan to spend the next 6 weeks helping participants prepare for their virtual 10k by assisting them with virtual coaching and training plans from athletics Ireland qualified coaches to help them achieve their goal. It’s very sad that we will not get to run this race in large numbers using the fabulous new ramparts route, but we will be together in spirit as we take part individually.
To add to this years virtual fun we will have Juvenile races for under 18's.
Entry fees
10K Entry - 25euro (includes bespoke technical t-shirt & medal posted)
Juvenille Entry - 12euro (includes medal posted)
Optional purchase of limited edition Drogheda 10k snood
Host of spot prizes to be announced over the next few weeks
Results can be added from May 1st - 31st on MyRunResults.Com virtual results portal.
We will miss seeing you all on the streets of Drogheda in May so we would love to see social media channels painted red with all your photos, training progress & achievements. Please tag us in your photos and use #runourtown
When Covid struck last year, none of us knew what to expect in terms of athletics and road racing for quite some time. We held out hope for an adjusted 10k in some format throughout the year,but sadly this was not to be in 2020, as we entered lockdown after lockdown.
Drogheda & District AC rely solely on fundraising from our Race Series to continue to develop and grow our club. With the funds raised from races over the years we have been able to develop our grass field into a top-class athletics facility. We have installed an 800m all-weather running track, changing rooms, 100 vehicle car park, and have hosted club, provincial and schools athletics competitions. Every race entry we have received for the Drogheda 10k for the last ten years has contributed to this development. Every penny we raise is pumped back into our club and to local athletics.
