    Hi All

    Sorry about the late post, this Sundays run is in Altidore so we will meet at the Grove Pub at 10am and car pool from there. As always there will be opt out’s at 10 and 15km. This is a stunning local run and as always we will follow up with coffee and cake.

    Any problems with directions to the Grove Pub please post here.

    Hi All

    The run this week is in Djouce meeting at 10am in the lower car park. Weather depending the plan will be to run up onto the Wicklow way, across the top of the waterfall and down through Crone Woods a loop of approx. 15km and of course there will be a shorter 10km option for those looking for it.

    As always coffee and cake back in Enniskerry after.

    Where is the entrance for Altidore track in Kilpedder, went looking today but couldn’t find it. Found a couple of entrances, the ones with yellow and black gates, but the trails did not lead anywhere.

    Hi the Altidore trail I use has its entrance about 2km from the grove pub. So if you have your back to the Grove pub car park there is a road heading inland. Take that road (Tooman Road) and about a 1km up the road it swings hard right and then up a very steep hill again about 0.6km and at the top of that hill is the entrance into Altidore on the right hand side with a yellow and black forestry gate at the entrance.

    There is a wide open track at the entrance and you run down this for about 200m then take the first right and head down hill. This track goes on for about 2km until you come to a large Y junction and you can either go right or left but either way it take you on a 5km hilly loop (just stick to the main trail).

    Hope this helps, if not you are just going to have to join our Sunday runs πŸ˜‰

    Also just check out Altidore (Tooman Road) on Google maps and the trail is very clear

    Hi All

    This weeks run is going to be nice and flat but still a really nice run. So this week it is Roundwood Lakes meeting in Roundwood at 10am. As we are running the lakes there are plenty of distance options available.

    So if we could meet up at the on street parking as you come into Roundwood just before the Coach House, we will run from there to the lakes.

    See you all there

    Hi all

    I know the racing season is nearly upon us but I’m still going to plan for the some hill running.

    So this weekend it’s Ballinastoe Woods for a magical mystery tour.

    Meeting at Ballinastoe car park at 10am ready to hit the hills followed as always by coffee and scones.

    Hi All

    Myself and Brendan Borland are heading out for an easy run tomorrow meeting at The Men’s in Greystones that’s the small Dart car park overlooking the North end of the South beach in Greystones. Plan is to run the Cliff walk to Bray and back followed by a quick dip and coffee and cake to finish off.

    As we are running the cliff walk we are meeting a little earlier than normal at 9am to avoid the early walkers.

    All welcome and remember to bring your togs (no wetsuits) for a dip after πŸ˜‰

    So the taper for Dublin is about to begin so again it is a nice easy run along the cliff walk tomorrow morning if anyone fancies a potter, distance somewhere between 10-14km depending on weather. Meeting at 9am at the small Dart car park at the top end of the south beach in Greystones (swim car park). As always there will be coffee after.

    Hi All

    It’s that time of year again, the wonderful off-season which means it time to leave the roads behind and hit the hills. So we will start off nice and easy for the first couple of weeks and base our runs out of Djouce. The plan is to meet as usual at 10am in the main Djouce Forest car park which is 5min from Kilmacanogue.

    So if you have not been to Djouce forest before just exit of the N11 at Kilmac and take the Roundwood/Glendalough road. After about a mile take the first right hand turn signposted for Enniskerry. Again drive about 1km and take the first left turn which is a very steep and tight turn. (you know you will have gone too far if the road turns hard right at the Powerscourt waterfall junction) Once you have turned onto the old long hill road then the forest is about 1km up the road on the right hand side, the first coniferous forest you see and the entrance is there with a large carpark inside.

    This run is an easy run and always followed by coffee and cake so all are welcome new and old members, though I must point out this is an unofficial training session.

    As the weeks progress we will vary the run locations.

    So that’s it, just remember to bring old runners as it’s a little muddy up there and a change of clothes if you plan on coffee after.

    Any queries please post here.
