If you want to run a longish type run on a weekly basis, join me at 9am in the carpark of the Visitor Centre each Saturday. Distance wise it'll be anything from 16km to 33km to coincide with the Belfast marathon on the 5th May. We will run at an AVERAGE PACE of 5:20 mins/km where we will always run 'off-road' so bring suitable footwear. We begin the run at 9am SHARP and arrive back for coffee & cakes joining the 10km Dublin Runner group. Distance will increase as the weeks go on i.e. on 30th March will be 18 miles, on the 6th & 13th April will be 20 miles both days. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you Maeve

Saturday 23 March - "Run the Piers" the DLPR Classic!! This route caters for many distances and speeds. The Classic route should suit all levels. See you at 10am on Saturday. 10km - run to the end of the West Pier (incl the spit on both outward & return) and finish with the East Pier for 10km. Plenty of shorter versions available. http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/627590932 "We run 8-10K each week. There are always several running speeds so come along even if you're a beginner. The main highlight of the morning is to relax in the cafe (Poppies beside the Peoples Park) where we reward ourselves with coffee, tea and treats! One thing we can guarantee - you will not find a more supportive group and if you come along once, you'll be hooked!
Hello, This is a quick hill run starting form Marlay park and heading towards the biggest and best hill I could find around Dublin. There is no particular pace and the idea is to strengthen those legs. No one will be left behind. Coffee after. We will follow the wicklow way out from Marlay and run for 5.5 km (450m of elevation gain) up to the top of Fairycastle, we will have a little rest and then run down back to the carpark. Map here - https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/m/?r=7306112&rf=1 There is an option for a longer run, whoever is interested. Lots of different paces in the group and the faster will run longer etc. The terrain is about 20% road and the rest is trail, so i'd suggest trail runners. Depending on the weather I'd bring a jacket as the top can get quite windy and you'd want to stop and enjoy the views of the city. Filip
