Committee

The Dublin FrontRunners committee consists of a maximum 7 members  who meet regularly to organise how the club is run, and work on any events we’re organising, below are some of the committee members.

Chair

Andy Andrew Chambers

Member since: March 2010
Why did you join: To improve my running and make some new friends
What’s the best thing about DFR: The mix between running and the social side, it’s great to get out running in the park Saturday mornings and then have a catch up over coffee and cake afterwards.
Goals for 2016: This will be my second (and final) year as chair, I plan on continuing to represent all our members from social to seasoned runners, and enjoying running and the social side :) Hopefully I’ll get a chance to beat some PB’s and plan on visiting some of the other Front Runner pride runs in Europe.

Pride Run Organiser

Committee PatriciaPatricia Paffen

Roles and Responsibilities: Organise and manage the 5th annual Pride Run which takes place on June 17th.
Member since: 2012
Why did you join: I joined as I ran in 2011 on my own and wanted to be part of a group with like minded people (that share my obsession of running). Felt running on my own was a bit boring and saw these groups running in Phoenix Park and thought that will be fun. Well and that is right! I love every minute of running with the group and going for breakfast on Saturday mornings. I could have never imagined to be able to run let stand join a club, everyone in the club made me feel welcome and is very supportive.
Goals for 2016: Enjoy running (focus less on time/PB’s) and share my joy for running with others.
