RNLI Castlewellan 10k/ 5k and 1-mile Funrun

The RNLI 10k/ 5k and 1-mile funrun will take place on Sunday 11th December and will be on mostly flat terrain around the Castlewellan Lake. The 10k and 5k events are chip-timed with prizes for winners and iconic RNLI All Weather Lifeboat medals, which will make a great collector's item. The events will appeal to the seasoned athlete but also families and fun runners who just want a bit of fun and exercise in the lead up to Christmas.

We will also have a 1-mile Christmas dash as an option. Families/prams/ pets more than welcome. Please note fun runners will not be timed, they will also receive the Christmas medal instead of a Lifeboat medal.
Prizes for most festive costumes!
Beat the queue! We are able to offer pre-event number collection and/or registration on Saturday 10th December between 1-3pm at the Newcastle Lifeboat Station. As we only have a small carpark, it is advisable to park nearby and walk to the station if possible. Address: South Promenade Newcastle BT33 0EX
For those who cannot make the date but don't want to miss out on our fabulous medal, you can opt for the 'virtual option'. Just do the 10k in your own time, send your evidence to [email protected] (Strava/Garmin screen shot etc.) and we will post out your medal. Please note you will not receive a race number for the virtual run.
The event will raise much needed funds for the Newcastle Lifeboat Station. Crew have been busier than ever saving lives at sea and we need to raise the vital funds to help cover boat and station costs.
