Irish Milers IMC vs BMC Mile Sponsorship

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.

IMC Logo BlueThe 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.

Great Ireland Run Saturday 11th April

Because of the Great Ireland Run this weekend, our Saturday run will take place from the Visitors Centre at the normal time of 10am.

The park will be extremely busy so give yourself plenty of time to make it over and if you’re driving allow extra time to find parking. There are a number of road closures with most roads shut between 12:30pm and 3:00pm, so you may need to eat your scone quickly 🙂

Road Closures – OPW

For anyone running in the Great Ireland Run, the meeting point is the Papal Cross car park, at 12:30pm, I will have singlets for anyone racing.

Thanks
Andy
