Waterstown parkrun Results July 2016

Waterstown Group Trophy Handover 2016Last Saturday DFR took on our second parkrun of 2016, thanks to everyone who turned up, and for the support from Waterstown themselves.

Some great running with Jacqui and Dermot finishing 4th in the women and men’s categories, well done.

Waterstown Warriors also won the Best Dress Group at the Pride Run, and Dermot gave them their winning trophy.

Waterstown parkrun is our local run and we’re always happy to support, check out the full results below.

If I’ve missed anyone let me know, it may be because you don’t have Dublin Front Runners listed as your club.

Club Gear 2016

Club Gear

Run Logic LogoIt’s been 3 years since we’ve offered any club branded gear, so we’ve been working with Run Logic in Templebar to provide some.

The singlet is not AAI approved, I’ve been unable to source Navy Singlets in both men’s and women’s fit, so you won’t be able to wear these in AAI races, we will look at options for AAI approved club singlets. The club has a stock of singlets should anyone need one for an AAI race.

Try On Night

Tuesday 12th July 5pm – 8pm, samples of kit in various sizes will be available to try on, so you can see what it looks like and check your size.

I’ll also look to have some samples available at our runs to have a look, you’ll also be able to drop into the shop to check them out.


Orders must be placed by 17th July at the latest, and will be ready the last week of July for collection in the Run Logic store in Templebar.

You will be dealing directly with Run Logic for payment and collection, and payment is via PayPal. Ash can be contacted in Run Logic if you have any questions.
