Welcome to the 2017 Carney Lissadell 10k



2017 Race Entries now Open >>> Click Here


This, the 13th annual Carney Lissadell 10K Road Race, will take place on Easter Monday, April 17th 2017. It is one of the most popular 10k events of the year, with over 350 participants last year alone. The event includes:

  • 10k Road Race
  • 10k Walk
  • Kids' fun run (up to 8yrs)
  • Kids' fun races (9 to 10, 11 to 13, 14 to 16)

All registrations for the 10k events will be in the Oxfield Community Centre. (Note no registration required for the free kids races - just turn up and run!). The event is AAI licenced. There will be the usual generous prize fund for a large number of categories and post-race refreshments in Oxfield for all participants. This year we delighted to confirm that Sligo based Core Timing will be providing chip timing services.  As usual the event raises much needed funds for some very worthy local community organisations, namely the 11th Sligo Benbulben Scouts and the Oxfield Community Centre.

REGISTRATIONS (for 10k Events):

  • Online: €15, see www.runireland.com.
  • On The Day: €18.

Please note all Registrations (incl chip pickups) will be at the Oxfield Community Centre from 9:30am.  No registration required for kids' events.


  • 11:00am Kids Fun Run & Races in Oxfield
  • 11:30am 10k Walk starts in Carney Village
  • 12:00pm 10k Run starts in Carney Village.


All competitors should make their way to the Oxfield Community Centre for registrations, parking, toilets etc. Carney Village is a 2 minute trot over the road, so your car can stay at Oxfield. Oxfield is located on the Oxfield Road just off the N15 Sligo/Derry Road. The junction is approx 8km north of Sligo, and 1.5km north of Drumcliffe Village. The turn is beside 'Ben's Topline Hardware' and is signed as Oxfield Road L3402. (NOTE: Do not take the junction just after Drumcliffe Village signed for Carney and Lissadell House).


The race will follow the traditional majestic route through the famous Lissadell Estate (subject to permission of the Owners of Lissadell).

Intending Participants, please Note...the Lissadell Estate is private property, which means that the section of the traditional Carney Lissadell 10k route through the estate IS NOT normally open to the public.  It is only through the kind permission of the Owners of Lissadell that the route will be opened up to facilitate the race (on April 17th). Until then, the Organising Committee would like to remind all intending participants and anyone preparing for the race that access through the estate IS NOT PERMITTED under any circumstances between now and race day. Thank you.


This community charity event only happens thanks to the time and effort of our volunteers and the support of many local businesses and individuals.  A huge thank you goes to:

  • The Owners of Lissadell House
