Our RATHLIN RUN 2020 is scheduled to take place on SATURDAY 29TH AUGUST 2020 – this remains the case!

However, given the current situation with Coronavirus COVID-19, we feel it would be insensitive to launch the event and open entries right now; our aim was to launch it in March, as per previous years.

We will continue to monitor the situation and notify you of the launch of the Rathlin Run 2020 and the opening of entries as soon as practicable.

Kindest regards,

Rathlin Run Team

It is absolutely ESSENTIAL that you book your ferry before entering the race.

Entry fee:

Rathlin Run 10 Mile Challenge - £30 per person

Ratlin Run 5k Race - £20 per person


On your race entry form you will be asked about further donations to BAC (Belfast Activity Centre).  100% of this donation will go to BAC.  For further information on BAC please visit www.belfastactivitycentre.com.

Terms & Conditions of Entry:

On accepting the terms and conditions on the entry form, should an athlete not be able to run, their entry fee will NOT be refunded, nor can they expect a deferral of an entry or pass that entry onto someone else.  Anyone found competing under another athlete's name will be disqualified immediately and banned from any future RCJ Events race - this is a serious breach of health and safety.

On accepting the terms and conditions on the entry form, it is the responsibility of the athlete to ensure that they are fit and healthy enough to compete at the event and if the case should arise that they are not fit / healthy enough to compete - they must NOT run!

Given the unique nature of the Rathlin Run and the essential ferry crossings, it is important to note the following BEFORE entering the race - Entry fees are also non-refundable if the race has to be cancelled or postponed due to circumstances outside of our control; for instance due to a major incident, adverse/dangerous weather conditions, cancellation of ferries to and/or from Rathlin Island or on Police advice.  In the unlikely event that any of the above should occur, a new race will be set (if appropriate) and entries will be carried forward to this date giving suitable notice for athletes to make new arrangements.
