Entry Fee

Registration includes: Exclusive access to training and nutrition tips from our G5K Ambassadors, a printable bib and a finisher’s certificate.

The registration fee enables us to continue to support worthwhile projects in Ireland and Australia. From the 2021 Australian Global 5k we raised over $30,000 to support mental health project Beyond Blue in Australia and the Special Olympics.

We invite everyone to join us to run, walk, with a dog in tow or push the pram around a course of your choosing! There will be prizes for best dressed and most iconic finish line, so print out your bib and pin it to the front of your favourite t-shirt (the more colourful the better), or a rugby, footy or GAA jersey, a previous year’s Global 5k t-shirt, or if you’d like to take part in fancy dress then go right ahead. Don’t forget to snap a selfie along the way!

For our Sydney runners we are planning a post run celebration at The Orient Hotel at The Rocks from 1pm, join us for a well-deserved post run catch up.
