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

AndyAndrew 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.

Why did you join: I had recently started doing Triathlons and wanted to improve my running as well as make new friends.
