• Jog for Jockeys

    These unique 5km and 10km runs allows participants to walk, jog or run on the iconic Curragh plains including running up the home-straight of the Curragh Racecourse – following in the hoof-prints of famous racehorses such as Nijinsky, Shergar, Sinndar, Galileo, Grey Swallow and current Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Champion, Harzand. 

    Ruby Walsh, Champion National Hunt Jockey and Irish Injured Jockeys Chairman, said: “The Jog for Jockeys is a pretty special race, allowing runners and racing fans access to the world-famous Curragh Racecourse to run with lots of top jockeys and trainers. The 10km route is a great cross-country test for the more serious runner, while the 5km is perfect for fun runners and their families. The Injured Jockeys is such an important charity which supports our jockeys while they are out of action so I hope to see lots of runners, joggers and walkers at the start line on Sunday 21 of August.”

    All runners who pre-register online will receive a race t-shirt and will be provided with timing chips to record accurate race times. 

    Participants are asked to register online at www.jogforjockeys.ie. Sponsorship cards are also available online and from reception in Horse Racing Ireland at Ballymany, the Curragh, Co. Kildare.
