Sherkin Do Run Run

Sherkin Do Run Run – Get Active on Sherkin Island!

The legendary Do the Do Run Run on Sherkin Island returns on 19 August 2023.

People can run, jog or walk, taking in some spectacular island views along the way when they join this fabulous island run as part of the West Cork Islands Run Series!

The event will start and finish at the Islander’s Rest Hotel, which is only a short walk from the pier. There will be a bag facility at the hotel and changing facilities if required. After the event, there will be a party on the lawn by the Islander’s Rest, including live music. So you’ll have a great excuse to spend the afternoon relaxing after all your exertions.


Distances and Start Times

There will be 3k and 8k routes available, and the Do Run Run route will cover a combination of roads, off-road terrain, and beaches. This is a non-competitive event with the emphasis on fun and enjoyment.

We will have a common start at 2:45pm with two courses to choose from. The two routes meet up for the last 2kms if you want to rejoin other family members.

The organisations that will benefit from this year’s event are The Wild Atlantic Swimming Pool and The Buy The Old School group. This event, run in conjunction with the Cork Sports Partnership, is part of the West Cork Islands Run Series 2023. Pre-register online to claim your event t-shirt on the day!
