Time To Lace Up For Jimmy’s 10 K Run In Downpatrick

Jimmy’s 10K Run in Downpatrick is just round the corner

The popular Jimmy’s 10K race in Downpatrick, organised by local club East Down AC and supported by returning sponsor Finnebrogue, is coming soon on Sunday 10th March.

The entries are flying in so if you are thinking of taking part, you need to get a move on!

The measured 10K course starts in Market Street and heads out via the War Memorial with 2 loops along the Quoile Road before finishing at the East Down AC Clubrooms.

It is a fairly flat course and suited to runners of all abilities.

Wayne Giles (EDAC), Barbara Mullan and Kerri Smith from Finnebrogue with Anna Gardiner, EDAC runner at the launch of the Jimmy’s 10 2024 in Downpatrick.

Some may be chasing the £200 prize for the win, while others might be taking up the challenge of their first 10K.

But this is sure to be a great event for all. There is also a relay option where a team of two split the distance to each run approximately 5K.

Entry forms can be found at:


Entry includes a 2024 t-shirt for the first 700 entries as well as chip timing, pacers to help you meet your target, closed roads, water en route and at the finish, and a post-race BBQ  supplied by Finnebrogue for all.

A donation from the entry fee will be passed on to a nominated community charity.
