The OPW have requested that we cancel our Wednesday and Saturday runs for the duration of Joe Biden’s state visit as the park is under extra security. So we’ll be running from the War Memorial Gardens this week;
Wednesday 22nd June
Saturday 25th June
Meeting point is just inside the entrance off the South Circular Road, pass by the salvage yard.
There will be extra Garda security around the park from today until Sunday.
Bloom is on in the Phoenix Park this weekend, there are lots of road closures and the main event is in the visitors centre, so we’ll be running at an alternative location this Saturday 4th of June.
Saturday’s run will take place from Irishtown Stadium at the usual time of 10am, it’s located beside Ringsend Park. There’s plenty of parking available, we’ll have a long and short routes, Couch to 5k and walking group as usual. Afterwards we’ll go for food in Sandymount village.
May 7th is our New Members Run, if you’ve been thinking about joining Dublin Front Runners why not come along and see if you like it, if you have friends who are interested they’re more than welcome too. http://tiny.cc/dfrnew
Wednesday was our annual table quiz, a big thank you to our members who came out to support on the night and brought friends and family, this is our biggest fundraising event and your support is appreciated.
I’d also like to thank our host Sinéad Burke who has hosted our quiz for the last 3 years, The George Bar for having us and all the help they provided on the night, the volunteers from the club, Martha, Anne Maire, Claire, Siobhan, John K, John C and Eithne, along with the committee especially Gregory for all his work and fab questions 🙂
Finally a thank you to those who donated prizes, Kevin, Leo, Jacqui, Steve Boylan, Gareth, The Garden Powerscourt, Nancy Hands, The George Bar and the Phoenix Cafe.
We raised €670 for our club and thanks to the winning team generously donating their winnings, we raised €1,100 for our Pride Run Charity the LGBT Helpline.
