  • Saturday & Sunday 10.30am. (ALL YEAR in Marlay Park)
    There are no rules about how many sessions you must attend and all are welcome to attend whenever they can. However the more you attend the more benefit you’ll get.

If you’d like to try it out first then you are welcome to join in with us any Sunday morning in Marlay at 10.30am. We meet beside the Tennis courts. (To take part in all other sessions you must be a member) 


We train to improve our fitness and for events like the Women’s Mini Marathon, Parkrun, BHAA Races, Connemarathon, Dublin Race Series, Dublin City Marathon and various 10kms around the country during the running season.  There’s a great buzz from targeting a race and inspiring each other to achieve your personal running goal. A big contingent from the group ran the Women’s Mini-Marathon last year while over 20 ran the Dublin City Half-Marathon.

Run with people of your own ability and level. Novice, Intermediates, Experienced runners and coaches, experienced, NOT ELITE.  Gain knowledge from those who’ve done it all before and train with us and have fun doing so.
