Beginner Running Group

We started a Beginner Running Group to teach people who had never run before how to take up the hobby. We started with our current group in March 2017, and we’re still going strong.

We’re now taking expressions of interest for a second running group, to commence when we have sufficient numbers!

Advanced Group

Mondays 10:00am – 10:45am Drop-In: €15 6 Weeks: €60

Beginner Group

Mondays 9:15am – 10:00am Drop-In: €15  6 Weeks: €60


We run a different route around Marlay Park each week. We meet at the Marlay Park South Gate, beside playground (directions).

What standard is this group?

  • The Advanced Group are currently running 3-5 minutes at a time, with 4-6 intervals in each session. We take a walking break between each interval of between 90 and 180 seconds.
  • The Beginner Group is a 6 week programme designed for people who have NEVER RUN BEFORE. We’ll be starting with 30 seconds of very slow jogging and increasing steadily each week.

Why should you join?

  • You’re interested in trying some jogging/running to see if you like it.
  • You want to jog/run with a social group of local people.
  • You want to improve your fitness, general health and energy levels.
