DFR News 26th Oct 2013

Hi all,

Hard to believe it’s Dublin marathon time again.
We’ll meet at the usual spot this Monday 28th from 10.30 onwards, under the bridge at the Luas green line Milltown stop.
Watch out for our DFRs taking part:
 
Eugene
Kieran T
Philip
Sandra
Seamus McL
Seamus M
Seamus S
Shane
and don’t forget to bring a supply of jellies as they’ll be sorely needed by the runners at mile 18!
Good luck to all.
Track training/fartlek
There’ll be no track session in Donore Harriers this bank holiday Monday 28 Oct.  Normal service will resume Monday 4 November at 19.00.  This subsidised event is for registered DFR members only for insurance reasons.

Bookings are essential, so please reserve and pay for your place as soon as possible. It’s on Saturday 14 December in Brasserie66 and cost is E40 per head.  You may of course bring a partner.  First come, first served.
Winter Circuits/Pilates
We haven’t had much interest expressed in running this over winter.  If you would like to take part in a say a six week block session, please email Club Secretary Kieran Cooney at dfrsecretary@gmail.com.
If there are insufficient numbers, we won’t be going ahead with it.
