- Phoenix Park - Relaxed Pace Run (8k, choice of speeds)
*** Reminder re head torches ** As we will be running in the dark for the winter months, please make sure you bring a head torch (there may be a few spares on the night but best to have your own). Also remember to wear bright reflective clothing so we are visible to other road users when running on the footpaths. Please be on time as we will leave at 7pm sharp, we don't want to keep the group waiting in the cold or rain! ======================================================== This run is for people who are interested in attending the weekly Phoenix Park runs, but are looking to run at a bit of a slower pace than the existing group. We'll meet on Chesterfield Avenue across from the zoo entrance, and aim to run 8k at a 5:30-6:00min/km pace - we will group up depending on who's around on the day so everyone has someone to run with. Typical route is the following: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/2480352543 Any questions please let me know!

- Yoga for All
The benefits of running are countless, but there are also ways that it can negatively impact the body. Muscle tightness, soreness and the occasional injury are all part and parcel of being a runner. These classes aim to: - Loosen tight muscles and reduce the risk of injury - Increase flexibility and build strength - Bring balance to the body by working in to areas often neglected when focusing on running only - Improve breathing control and increase lung capacity - Quieten the mind and encourage relaxation Regular cost is €10 per class or €50 for 6 weeks, Dublin Runners rate of €5.00 per class. If you wish to attend 6 weeks please email [masked]. Please get in touch if you have questions! Looking forward to meeting you.
- Improve your speed - Interval training for runners.
Meeting at Chesterfield Avenue opposite the zoo every week for a session to improve speed and stamina for runners. Not for absolute beginners but if you can run 5K in less than 35 minutes you will be fine. We will mix it up with alternate weeks of intervals on the grass at the Polo grounds and Khyber hill reps the other weeks. To make it easy for you we will post plan for each week, but we will aim for: • Every first and third week of the month: Intervals with one session 400 m intervals and one session intervals with varying lengths • Every second and fourth week of the month: Hills Intervals and hill reps are one of the best ways to improve your speed and stamina whatever your abilities or experience. It is used by everyone from beginners to experienced runners to push the body past its normal limits for short periods of time and then allowing it recover by returning to a slow jog or even walk. This is then repeated a number of times during the training session and over weeks measured speed and time will improve. We generally split the group up into three based on 5K race times. Group 1: Under 23 min for 5K Group 2 Under 28 min for 5K Group 3 Over 28 min for 5K The details of the intervals will be posted close to the meetup. Total time for the intervals should be under 30 min excluding the warm ups.. All sessions will start with stretching, a slow warm up jog and an explanation of the plan for the evening. Please ask any questions you might have. There is no charge for our sessions. Hope you will come out and join us. Shane

- Dublin Marathon Training - Final easy run before "DCM" day
Join for one final run to stretch the legs. We'll do no more than 2 miles (3.2km) the day before the marathon. It does n't matter which group you were in for the marathon training, for this event we'll all run together. Then have coffee & cakes to discuss how we're feeling for the marathon the following day.
- Dublin Marathon Cheer leading Bike squad
Not doing the marathon but want to share in the atmosphere and cheer your friends on? Then join us as we cycle around the course cheering on as many Dublin Runners as we can at various points in the course. The plan is that we will be at three points at the course at a time when most of our club mates will be running past including the 20 mile point when they will need our encouragement the most. Dress up or get a banner. All meet up afterwards in Doheny & Nesbitt's where Maeve has booked an area for us. We have done this for the last four years and in my books is much more fun than running it. :) If you have any questions please let me know. Nanda
