The Ray D’Arcy show is hitting the road for five special nationwide live shows, and after each show, there will be the 5K Run with Ray at 6 pm. The Run with Ray events will be taking place from Monday, June 10, and will be travelling around five different locations in Ireland.

After each show, there will be a 5K Run with Ray event at 6 pm. Registration will begin at 4:30 pm so please come early to ensure you get the correct size t-shirt and check-in. 

Over 1,000 people are set to join radio presenter Ray D’Arcy in Limerick for the sold-out 5km run among five locations around the country for the Ray D’Arcy 5K 2019.

Whether you’re a beginner or you want to get back into running, everyone was encouraged to take part in the 5K Run with Ray.

The runs will take place in Cork, Limerick, Wexford, Kildare, and Dublin between Monday, June 10, and Friday, June 14. The Limerick race will take place from Mungret Park at 6 pm on Tuesday, June 11, and the cost of entry is €5, but it`s already sold out!

The idea is to get first-time runners off the couch to take on the 5k challenge.

Ray D’Arcy, from RTÉ Radio 1, said; “When we first began these events years ago I hoped to get a lot of people turned on to running, with the hope that it might be the start of something new for them – a new and healthy lifestyle that they will embrace for the rest of their lives.”

He first did Run With Ray ten years ago at Today FM as a way of making running more accessible to people who wanted to take it up saying, “It’s all-inclusive, but we’re hoping that people who’ve never run before will join us.”

Listen to RTÉ Radio 1 every Tuesday from 3 – 4:30 pm to hear from expert Running Coach Mary Jennings who is the author of ‘Get Running’ and founder of Forget The Gym, how you can go from the Couch to 5K. Mary will be on the show every Tuesday to give running advice and tips. Ray will also host a special weekly running podcast to help you on your way to 5K!

Whether you’re a beginner or you want to get back into running, we want you to give 5K a go and Run with Ray.

See you at the park! Please note that participants must over 16 years of age.
