General Race Info
Our annual summer BBQ kicks off on Sunday from 6pm, it’s in the Radisson Blu on Golden Lane. We have an outside area booked until 10pm when we need to head back inside so as not to cause a noise nusance for neighnours. But we’ll probably be on our way to Bingo at that stage 🙂
There are still some tickets left if you want to grab one;
Directions to the hotel for anyone who hasn’t been there, it’s off the top of Georges St/Aungier St on Golden Lane;
Thanks to Gregory for organising.
Dublin Frontrunners will be sponsoring this years Irish Milers IMC vs BMC Mile, it’s an opportunity to support athletics and to highlight the activities of our club. From the IMC;
Run the Mile With Pride.
The Irish Milers Club announces the sponsorship of the Dublin Front Runners for the upcoming IMC v BMC Mile in the Morton Games July 24th. Without the help of the Dublin Front Runners the IMC would be unable to put on this prestigious mile event in the Morton Games. In turn we hope that this link up with the IMC highlights the activities of the Dublin Front Runners and its aims to our athletic community.
The Dublin Front Runners mission is to provide a healthy, athletic and social experience to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans runners ( LGBT) community.
