Braveheart 5k trail run 2018


  • 15th June 2018
    8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Braveheart 5k is a trail run hosted by Trim Athletic Club, taking in the beautiful and historic surroundings of Trim and the river Boyne.

Here is a flavour of what to expect:

Our 5k run has always been a popular summer race and this year will be no different!  The part-grass/part-path route brings you around the Porchfields in Trim, along the River Boyne with stunning views of Trim Castle and finishes at the iconic Yellow Steeple.  This year also The Braveheark 5k is the 5th race of The Kia Race Series.


The Braveheart 5km Run 2018 will take place on Friday 15th June at the Porchfields, Trim. Since its inception in 2010 the race which is organised by Trim Athletic Club has grown into one of the most popular events in the local running calendar.
Each year the race enables Trim AC to raise funds for itself and for its chosen charities. Race proceeds have helped the Meath Louth branch of Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, Trim Special Olympics Club, Leinster River Rescue, Irish Guide Dogs, Hope Foundation, Tabor House and the Conor Foley Neuroblastoma Foundation.

The location and route of the race along the banks of the historic river Boyne is a run back through history. It takes the runners among one of the finest collections of medieval monuments in Ireland. Each year runners and their spectators remark on this memorable visual treat. The friendly atmosphere and excellent post race hospitality combined with good organisation the host club enhances the experience for participants. This year we will be offering a quality technical t-shirt to early online entrants. The race has an Athletics Ireland permit and will be chip timed by Popup Races who provided the timing service for our Trim AC Nally’s 10 mile race in February.

Since our first race in 2010 the race has enjoyed generous sponsorship of numerous local businesses. We will be publishing this years sponsor list in the coming weeks. This level of participant support and commercial/community sponsorship is greatly appreciated by the club as it enables the club to put on a top class event for runners which brings ever increasing numbers each year. It also helps the club provide for its younger members and contribute to the wider community through our charity partnerships.
