Join us each week for a run of around 16km on a mixture of both grass & road within the park. Pace will be 5:20/km, you should be able to run at this pace. Although if there's a good few who click in with various paces we can split into sub groups within a km or two into the run.
We start from the Visitor Centre carpark at 8:55am SHARP.
After the run we normally meet with the other Dublin Runners groups for a social catch up coffee.
If you have any questions, let us know.
Maeve & Robbie
The plan for this run is a pace of 5 min per km or a little under for about an 90 min.
Often some of the group will go out earlier to get some extra distance in but still pass through the visitors centre at about 9.00
Aim is to use the trails/grass as much as possible.
Coffee afterwards with some of the other groups.
If you have any questions, just get in touch.
Join the group for circa 10/12km on a mixture of both grass & road within the park. We start at 9.30am SHARP from the carpark of the Visitor Centre. Only sign up if you're able for at least 8km upwards with an avg pace of anything from 5:30 to 5:40/km.
The group will try stay together for the first few KM's then those who want to run that bit faster will be able to go off a bit quicker which means we'll break into mini groups as the distance progresses.
After the run we normally meet with the other Dublin Runner groups for a social catch up coffee.
