Each year in December, since 2015, Running in Ireland has opened up nomination from runners across the country for their favourite races that year. Once the thousands of votes are collated, we shortlist the finalists and again, hand the decision back over to runners to vote and choose their winners.

Have a look at the previous winners in the drop down menu above. These are the finest races in Ireland, and a excellent starting point for planning your races each year.
