We train to improve our fitness and for events like the Women’s Mini Marathon, ParkRun, BHAA Races, National 10K, Dublin Race Series, Dublin Marathon and various 10kms around the country during the running season.  The Dunshaughlin 10K and the mucky and cold Rás na hEireann are definitely among our favorites!


There’s a great buzz from targeting a race and inspiring each other to achieve your personal running goal.

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.

We cater for all running levels.  We have 90 or so runners involved and we promise you will fit in and feel welcome. Plus there’s a great social bond in the group too. 

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.
