All entrants will receive a running diary, as well as water and Avonmore Protein Milk at the race finish, and early entrants will receive a #dunboyne4mile medal hanger. There will be spot prizes for EirGrid Dunboyne 4 Mile  tee shirts at registration/number collection – will your number be the lucky one?!?
