Frequently Asked Questions

When & where is the Greencastle Run held ?

The Annual Greencastle Run is held every year on December 26th in Greencastle, County Tyrone. Greencastle is located halfway between Omagh & Cookstown.

 

What is the Greencastle Run ?

The Greencastle run is a 5mile road run, it takes runners round a unique 5mile road loop starting and finishing on the exact same spot at Greencastle Community Center. The run was orginally started in 1986 by Greencastle AC as road runs were very scarce at the time, the run has raised thousands for local charities since 1986.

 

How do I enter the Greencastle 5mile Run ?

You can register online by clicking "Enter NOW" on any page. The first 1000 entries are guaranteed one of our High Quality Technical T-shirts. We do NOT accept entries on the day.

 

Can I register in person on the morning of the race ?

Run entries will NOT be accepted on the day.
In previous years we have been getting up to 85% of entries placed online beforehand. Due to the large numbers now taking part, our hall is at maximum capacity and we no longer have room inside to cater for late entries.
We still accept Walk entries on the day up to 10:45am.

What do I get for my registration fee ?

You get to take part in County Tyrone's longest running Road Run, a high quality t-shirt, timing-chip (which must be returned afterwards), a goody bag when you cross the line, post race refreshments and a great atmosphere.

There will be a timing system at every mile marker on the course, afterwards our results will display your indivdual time & pace for every mile, your overall finish time and average pace for the full 5mile. No other race in Ireland supplies detailed results like this.
