Next Meetup

Dublin (Sub 4:30) Marathon Training - Phoenix Park
Our final Saturday Group run prior to the marathon, we will be doing an easy 16 km (10 miles) this week. We will try to run on the grass as much as possible, the route will go from the V.C towards North Road onto the grass along the inside perimeter wall of park. MapMyRun does n't allow me to mark the grass route from mile 2 to 4 .... but we run along the inside wall on grass/soft underlay. Along the Acres Road from mile 6 to 7 we will try run on grass and again further along going up Chesterfield Ave at mile 14 to 16 we will try run on the grass. See route: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/1637710095 ============================================================= This group is for all those who want to achieve a Dublin Marathon time of under 4:30 and the pace of the run will be between 6 min per km and 6:20. It is not supposed to be run at race pace but to build endurance and the best way to get through it is as part of a group. Ideally we will match up runners of similar pace and no one will be left behind. We will run the same course as the Sub 4 and Sub 3:30 groups and aim to meetup afterwards for coffee. The distance and route will change each week and will update the meetup closer to each run. We will have water out on the route but you need to be signed up by Friday evening or there may not be enough for you. We meet at the car park for the Visitors Centre. Please be there for 8:50. Coffee afterwards will be in the Phoenix Cafe which is beside the Visitors Centre. If you have any questions please just ask and if you would like to help organise these runs we would greatly appreciate it.
