What we're about
We are a group of recreational runners that get together for social runs around Dublin. We are not a professional running group. Any run that you participate in you do so at your own risk. It is up to the individual to assess their ability to participate in the run. We advise that participants dress suitably; wear proper running shoes and gear, and in poor light we recommend the use of High Viz Clothing. We take no responsibility for personal injuries or new or existing medical conditions that may be aggravated by running. If you are new to running or exercise in general we recommend consulting your physician before joining us. We are not responsible for property lost during runs.
By applying for membership to this group you are accepting responsibility that all group activities that you participate in are at your own risk. This includes all runs and any other activities. If you are not in agreement, please do not proceed with membership.

Some of us have minimal running experience, others have lots or train with professional running clubs. Some of us have taken up running for the social benefits!
We are NOT a competitive group. We encourage everyone to start off at their own pace. We always meet up afterwards to make sure the last runner/s arrive safely.
There is a €5 once-off joining fee which we use to pay the meetup.com fees and to provide yearly prizes. Payment is usually by paypal but we can make provisions if you do not have a paypal account by contacting one of the organisers.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO RUNNING IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SHOES, NOT ONLY FOR COMFORT BUT TO PREVENT INJURIES. WE ARE SPONSORED BY RUNLOGIC WHO CARRY OUT GAIT ANALYSIS AND SHOE FITTING.
