AAI National 10km Championship

Great Ireland LogoSunday April 10th is the AAI National 10Km Championship, it’s an important race on the AAI calendar and it would be great to get as many DFR’s out running for the club as possible.AAI Logo

It’s run as part of the Great Ireland run, but you register separately as an AAI athlete, you’ll need your AAI number for this and Regina our secretary can give this to you.

Waterstown Park Run March 2016

On Saturday March 12th we’ll take part the Waterstown Parkrun, this is a great opportunity for anyone who hasn’t raced before, it’s a 5K race that’s free to enter you just need to register beforehand. It’s not too far from the park so we’ll head back there afterwards for the usual coffee and scones.

Check out the pictures from when we took part in the St. Anne’s Parkrun

I’ll send out more info closer to the date, but put it in your calendar 🙂 There’ll be a run on as normal in the park for anyone who’s not attending.

Wicklow Way Relay 2016

Wicklow Way Poster 2016We are looking to see if we can get a DFR team for the IMRA Wicklow Way Relay ( on Saturday, 21st May. It is an ambitious challenge – it involves running a relay team from Dublin to Carlow on 127km of trails through Wicklow Mountains. Expect lots of great scenery and a fun chatting to all the other teams taking part. There are a variety of relay legs from 8km to 21km – all fairly hilly (but some hillier than others). We plan to organise a taster trail group jog on 20 February, let us know if you’re interested.
