Entries for the RATHLIN RUN 2023 will be available from 18:00hrs on Monday 8th May 2023.  Entries will close when we reach our 240 capacity or on Thursday 3rd August 2023.

It is absolutely ESSENTIAL that you book your ferry before entering the race.  You can do this via the RATHLIN FERRY website HERE!

Entry fee:

Rathlin Run 10 Mile Challenge (1pm Start) - £30 per person 

Rathlin Run 5k Race (1:10pm Start) - £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 Rathlin Run - this is a serious breach of health and safety.


This can only be allowed via 'My Registration' portal on the official race transfer system operated by The Rathlin Run until THURSDAY 3RD AUGUST 2023 (7PM).  You can manage your own registration and transfer the entry via the 'My Registration' link which is included on your confirmation email.  Any transfers requests from after the 03/08/2023 (7pm) will not be accepted as per terms and conditions of entry.  Anyone knowingly competing under someone else's name on the race day will be immediately disqualified. Please check your race pack at registration to ensure your details are correct.

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 due to circumstances outside of our control; for instance, a cancellation at short notice with all race plans already in place (within 7 days of the event taking place), or, due to a major incident, adverse/dangerous weather conditions, cancellation of ferries to and/or from Rathlin Island or on Police/Emergency Services' advice.  In the unlikely event that any of the above should occur, the Rathlin Run Team will do our upmost to provide an alternative value for money solution.  Entries will NOT be deferred to 2024.
