Registrations now open for Jog For Jockeys

Racing stars Ruby Walsh, Shane Foley, Ronan Whelan, Patrick Mullins, Billy Lee, Barry Geraghty, Gary Carroll, Conor Hoban, Niall McCullagh, Ross Coakley, Derek McCormack, Mark Enright, David Mullins, Danny Mullins, Jamie Codd and Emmett McNamara are just some of the jockeys who have signed up for Jog for Jockeys 5km at the Curragh Racecourse on Saturday September 1.

The competition for the winning racing yard or stud farm team is also expected to be hotly contested with team commitments from Ken Condon Racing, Rangers Lodge, Dermot Weld, Michael O'Callaghan, Tully East, Denis Hogan, Johnny Murtagh, The Irish Field, RACE, Gordon Elliott, The Irish National Stud and FenuHealth.

This year, the 5km Jog for Jockeys is a special eighth race on the card at the Curragh’s Saturday September 1 race meeting and will go to post at 5:15pm. All monies raised will be donated to Irish Injured Jockeys.

Shane Foley, 2018 Tattersalls Irish 2000 Guineas winner and regular runner said: “I’ve been first jockey home in Jog for Jockeys before, so the heat is on to post a good time this year and beat some of the lads in the weigh room.  It’s going to be a very unique and competitive eighth and final race at the Curragh on Saturday September 1 and more importantly, a brilliant way to raise funds for Irish Injured Jockeys, a charity very close to my heart.”

Michael Higgins, General Manager of Irish Injured Jockeys said: “Jog for Jockeys gives racing fans a rare opportunity walk, jog or run around the world-famous Curragh Racecourse and meet lots of racing stars along the route. Entry costs €20 for those who register online at www.jogforjockeys.ie before Friday August 24. Participants who pre-register online will also receive a free Jog for Jockeys t-shirt. We had a great turnout last year and we’re hoping for even more support this year.”

Entry costs €20 for those who register online at www.jogforjockeys.ie before Friday August 24. Participants who pre-register online will also receive a free Jog for Jockeys t-shirt and free entry into the Curragh’s race meeting on Saturday September 1 featuring the Sisk race day.

Registrations will also be open on race day and all runners will be provided with timing chips to record accurate race times. 

All children can take part free of charge but there is a €10 fee for children under 12 who would like a T-shirt and a timing chip. A team of five is €100, with the three best times to count.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three males and females home and there will also be childrens’ and team prizes.

Registration is now open at www.jogforjockeys.ie
