Our run this morning is from the War Memorial Gardens in Islandbridge instead of the park, meet near the Islandbridge entrance, see below, usual time of 10am.
5 Mile Race
If you’re doing the 5 Mile in the park this morning, the meeting point is the bag drop area at 9:30am, good luck to everyone running.
Instead of scones after the run (I hear a sign of disappointment) we’ll be having a fabulous brunch and some bubbles in Bleaker St on Dorset St for anyone marching with the club today. Meet there from 11:30am before we move to Parnell Square to assemble for the march.
We’re meeting outside the Hugh Lane Gallery at 12:30pm to assemble for the March, don’t forget to wear a DFR t-shirt for the march either your singlet, running top, Pride Run or Yes Equality t-shirt.
I’ve also emptied the DFR safety deposit box and will have all our good jewellry so share around.
Dublin Pride Festival
Hopefully everyone had a good day and night out; thanks to those members who marched behind the DFR banner or popped up around town to support.
Thanks especially to Kieran Cooney and Andy Chambers, our highly-trained official marshals who bravely put themselves in the firing line in case of any danger, and where very well accessorized.
We had fewer DFRs marching this year, so if anyone has any suggestions as to how DFR could better engage with or partake in Pride 2014, please let us know on the Committee.
The summer course of pilates starts this Tuesday 2 July at 7pm in St Andrew’s Resource Centre, 114 Pearse St.
It’s E60 (no subsidy from DFR) for the six week course, payable up front, and don’t forget your mat and the application form.
Thanks to Kieran Cooney for organising this, contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org with any last-minute queries or interest.
Fartlek continues every Monday at 7pm at the Magazine Fort in the Phoenix Park. Good luck to Anne Marie who’s leading the session this week!
Rock n Roll half marathon
Discounted entry for this race in Dublin on Monday 5 August (the bank holiday) expires tomorrow 1 July. Sign up if you’re interested and we’ll look to enter a DFR Team. So far, Seamus Moore, Dermot McCarthy and Declan Treanor have expressed an interest, so one more needed….
Achill half marathon
We’ve had a few late withdrawals from Achill so if anyone has a race number or accommodation to offer, please let the club know.
If anyone needs a lift over, or can offer a lift, please post on Facebook or email Rónán.
