Running Groups In Westmeath

Numerous studies have shown that those who train in a group environment are considerably more likely to continue training than those who train alone. Not only is there the relaxed atmosphere of social banter, but also a bit of friendly competition (if you want it) and similar like minded people to swap and share training ideas and experiences with. Many long term friendships have evolved from these groups.


Our Regular Running Groups are weekly and are €5 pay as you go, see the timetable below for information.

The Beginners Groups are ran in 8 week blocks with an upfront payment of €40 for the 8 classes. This block is designed especially for the absolute beginner

The Intermediate Groups are ideal for those who are ready to move on to the next level but aren’t quite able for the faster paced groups yet or for those making a return to running after a long time out & want to ease back into it. They are also run in 8 week blocks

        Dublin City Marathon Training 2017 8th Aug 2017

        I intended to start this DUBLIN CITY MARATHON 2017 Training Blog on Sunday but I was just too tired😴😴 After a Spring of ok results (not quite what I was aiming for but hey...) I decided to enter DCM. Target very simple - to break 2.40; that is; around 6.05 per mile. Simple to type not so simple to do. I've done it b4, but in Barcelona and Rotterdam. My fastest Dublin is 2.41. And they were 3, 4 and 7 years ago. I'll be 45 when DCM 2017 comes along so that's perhaps a factor for me to consider😨😤.
