Weekly roundup Monday 1st June 2020.

It was a beautiful weekend and it seems set to continue for a while. Make sure to keep hydrated out there.  Tomorrow the handicaps and line up for the final of the DBRC virtual will be announced, one more sleep, if you still want in, let me know!
The only confirmed race we know of to date, is The Run From The Crum on October 3rd. It's a tough 24 hour dash to get as far away from Belfast's Crumlin Jail as possible in 24 hours.  
We will watch for other events and post accordingly.
The East Of Ireland Virtual and Donadea Virtual series both continued. 100k or a mini untra 28 miles for Donadea and 10k or 12k for EOI.
There were most excellent performances for DBRC with Male and Female winners in the 10k but overall really good times.
If ever you were going to try to big distances, the Donadea Series is a great opportunity. The distance may seem daunting but can be done in one day or over a few days and it literally starts and ends on your door step! 
Listed below are the stats, be proud all. 
It is great to see groups meeting up and getting out. Remember, for the moment it's a case of minding the rules, keep your distance, wash your hands and throw on the sun cream especially given the weather.
Keep safe everyone and be BLUE in the best possible way.

Weekly roundup Monday 11th May 2020.


Yikes! It's Monday again!  The 2k limit is now a 5k limit and we can all move about a bit more. Enjoy, be responsible and stay safe! 

This week, it's 2 miles. You have from right now until 10pm Sunday night to give it your best shot. Send in your result, the results will be collated and the fiendishly clever handicap system applied, SO lets be having you. Send your times by pm to me, email (gpobeirne@gmail.com) or post on the page. Screenshot of your strava/garmin or pic of your watch, or your word with a seflie will suffice if none of the options suit, usual rules, flat elevation please :) There is also a Garmin connections link for DBRC.

The Donadea Virtual Series continues, this week, 50 miles! The task could be taken over 4 days and was a serious ask. Congrats to club members who took it on and came through smiling.
Tom Reynolds,  Anto Sheridan, Eva Tomonyiczka, Sharon Wilders, Greg O'Beirne and special mention for Mrs T again !
This weekend the distance is 45km 350 metres, over 4 days, fancy a challenge? See the Donadea site for details.
Zuper well done to George Brady for completing a 50k run for Pieta House this weekend, raising a positive ball of money, and for a 10k dressed a the honey monster (new nickname in the offing!)  Congrats too to Karl Bingham  on his 5k challenge, zuper run.
Anyone else get up to anything?  Let us know!   Everyone deserves a shout out!
The recent announcements have set out a timeline for the easing of restrictions and all we can say is hopefully soon we can get back together in some capacity shape or form.

Here is the link to the actual site 


 It's understood sports activity would be restricted to 4 people together respecting social distancing. All will be made clear soon for sure so we can't comment, but we can say is that make sure nobody gets left out! #mewe :) 

Stay in touch!  Keep posting! See you all soon!  And  remember, Whatever you do, do it in BLUE!

Weekly roundup Monday 19th April 2020

Round about this time last year, if memory serves me right, and it sometimes doesn't, lol, the Grand Prix Series was in full swing, we had the National Road Relays and the East Of Ireland events in Donabate.  I've lost the pics of Donabte bar a few, but we have great images from a great day out at the Road Relays. 

Sunday 19th was to be the date this year, but due to, well you get it, it wasn't to be.  DBRC walked into the lions den last year, the standard over these short distances was extremely high but we held our own, performed really well as teams, and certainly were the best represented and supported club on the day. 

In our history we have had some results in this club, with major individual wins, but the pride of that day and the team spirit stays with us.  Hope these pics bring back a flavour of the day and we will get our chance to take on the challenge again and certainly to display the team and family spirit that makes us DBRC. 


Stay safe everyone ! KEEP IN TOUCH !  And let us know what you get up to in BLUE!

Weekly roundup Monday 13th April 2020

Thank you so much to all our contributors this week, there are enough work outs and ideas to keep you fit and active and in shape for when  we meet again, for now you can have your very own hall of gain at home.  

These are serious and distressing times, we sincerely hope you and yours are well and are unaffected. Lets keep a sense of perspective and at the same time keep life as normal as possible.  The message remains the same, stay safe, follow the instructions, stay in your 2k and please please be kind and considerate to other road and pathway users.

Around about this time last year DBRC were winning at Santry in the Grand Prix.  This week it seems the only event going was a virtual cycle race, our very own King of Scotland Alastair Higgins came in top 100. Here's hoping there can be a few more similar events to compete in.

One sad item, our very own DBRC pooch and Clonliffe Race winner Roxy has passed on. Pictured below with George Brady.

Stay safe everyone ! KEEP IN TOUCH !  And let us know what you get up to in BLUE!

Weekly roundup Monday 6th April 2020

Hi to all. It's Monday and time to take stock and to send out those virtual hugs :) .
What can we roundup? Nothing really!  But we will come up with some club based activilty very soon!
This time last year we were busy in St Annes Park at the 10 mile National Championship. There's a few pics included below to bring back a taste of the day and a good day it was too!  
We hope you are all safe and well. Let's keep those zuper fit bodies active and moving. We can't say it enough, and we are not preaching.  
Stay safe! Use the 2km app!  Run responsibly!   Please stay inside your 2k zone.  None of us would like for people wandering into/around our own area either, it's temporary and just for a while. Think of it as a new form of 'zonal' training! 
For now it's the only advice and sensible thing we can say, apart from Wash your hands! 
It really is great to hear members are keeping active and using the best of their time and trying new things such as pilates and yoga as well as their daily run. We can all only wish this difficulty passes soon and we can return to some sort of normality.
So please, be safe, everybody make the effort to stay in touch with each other, and keep us posted!

Weekly update Monday 30th of March 2010


Hi folks!  It really is lovely to see everyone's posts, with tips for workouts and different ways to keep the fitness levels up.  We have a great way to stay in touch, keep close and let each other know we are safe and well, so do let us know what you are up to and keep posting.  It doesn't  take me to say that these are strange days indeed. Please everyone stay safe. Take the advice. Wash your hands. If running, run sensibly and responsibly. Keep in touch with each other. This time will pass! Keep your immune system strong, keep healthy and when that first race comes around it will be so good to let it rip and get back to what we love.

Here's a few images from recent posts. A goal can seem very far away especially at times like this. But belief can make it possible. Don't let these difficult times stop us from dreaming. 

Finally a big shout out to Mr. Frank McMorrow, one of the Aer Lingus pilots involved in the recent mission to China for hospital supplies.  Proud of ya pal! 

Stay safe! Use the 2km app!  Run responsibly!  #me/we #whateveryoudodoitinblue

Weekly update Monday 23rd of March 2010

Hi to all ! Thanks for sending in your selfies, and thank you most of all for being responsible and taking care to leave space when out and about and being very mindful of what is going on around us. We are all in this together. It certainly looks like more restrictions may come in although we are just guessing. Please please keep your distance, be prepared,  and maybe it's time now to consider a home routine to keep your fitness levels up. It's for all our sakes.   We couldn't pick a winner! (it was you Karl lol)  You are all winners!

We're all going to stay positive, keep in touch, and as a club we can pull together even if remotely :)

Be Safe, be Kind, be Good as you can and  be BLUE in the best way possible!  #me/we

Random update ! Wednesday 19th March 2020

We hope everyone is safe and well during this most unusual of times.  With no events being possible, do you remember what we were doing this time last year?  One big event was the DBRC takeover  day at Brickfields parkrun Drimnagh, having already successfully provided all the volunteers previously for St Annes, the DBRC crew headed over to the South side for a fine Saturday morning. Here are some more images too from that time. What were you doing? 

Stay safe everyone and see you soon!

Weekly Upd

Weekly Update Sunday 15th March 2020.

Hi to all. We trust you are all safe and well and being sensible out there. Kinda tricky to do a round up in a time such as this but there's more to it all than just results. we won't post safety notes or instructions, you have all heard and read the Official notices, so pay heed and stay safe. We want to see you all safe and well as soon as things begin to return to normal.  

Official training is suspended for the moment until further notice, most if not all races are also cancelled or postponed, even parkrun. We know many of you continue to run and train and we should as long as possible in safety. 

Congrats to Joe Kiernan on another martahon this week. Here's a few pics that crossed the desk during the week.  Keep on keeping blue, see you soon, take care out there, and lets all stay in touch!  Keep the spirit alive.

Me/We are more than runners!

WEEKLY ROUNDUP  Monday 10th of February 2020. 

Donadea weekend!  And Donadea did what Donadea does. A fantastic race where the ultras meet the marathoners, with the ultras having to speed it up and the chancer marathoners having to keep it going that few miles further. It’s a no prisoners taken National Championship over 50k and it’s done on a trail course.


Top performances for DBRC this year must go to Alastair Higgins for his 4th place in 3h 31m (whilst fighting a cold) and Eva Tomonyiczka completing her first 50k in style (check out that finisher pic!).  


A huge thanks to those who came out to support. Hope you enjoyed the day, your presence was a great boost to the runners and much appreciated.

Full list of DBRC results below and proud to report that all the DBRC finishers made it in under the 5hour cut off.  Commiserations to those who didn’t make the start or finish line.


DBRC came 2nd and 9th in the team event this year, and our runners acquitted themselves really well with just one minute between 1st and 2nd!  We have a whole year to get the team back up to full strength, lets be having you! There is normally an unrestricted time event at Donadea in June if you fancy a trial run.  You can do this!

Elsewhere Joe Kiernan continues to knock out marathons, and parkrun continues as usual.  Well done all.

Next up is the EOI Clontarf not a mid-week marathon this Thursday and the week after, on the 22nd, the EOI events in Lusk.

 Thanks to all who have signed up for the Terenure 5 mile (11am Sunday May 10th) for the club discount (15 euro). We are holding applications open for a little while longer if anyone else wants in.

Training continues, Tuesdays, Thursdays and trail runs Saturdays, be there, join in, make it happen!

If we have missed you, let us know!  All news welcome!

Evening all!

Zuper performances today at the Axa Raheny 5 mile, many personal bests, and overall great running, just awesome as predicted.  It really is fantastic to see the club so well represented and for members to turn in class performances. 

The coming weeks will be busy with so many races coming up, the Trim 10 mile is next, then the big event on the 8th, the Donadea 50k, Lusk 4 mile and of course the EOI events to mention but a few.

The club awards night and AGM is this Tuesday. It’s important for all members to attend. The new committee is to be selected and there are many other posts to be filled and up for grabs, including this one.  Your club needs your input to decide, or if you feel you have something to give, and are interested in a post. Please come forward for selection and let the committee know.

I’ve certainly enjoyed sharing your running journey over the last year and a half. It’s been nothing but awesome, entertaining and inspiring.  Keep it up and always, whatever you do, do it in BLUE!

! So see you on Tuesday!

The year has hardly started and there has been so much action! Congrats to all who took part in the Dublin Masters Cross Country Championship on Sunday. It’s great to see the club perform at the highest standard  events. We had some fine individual performances, without a doubt if we had more entrants, DBRC would chart highly in the club rankings. We can look to that going forward in this and other events. 

Many members took part in double parkruns on New Years Day, Numbers were high at training runs, lets keep the momentum going. Races will be coming thick and fast over the next few weeks, so keep us posted and the very best of legs.  The Axa (Raheny 5) is on January 26th (Sunday), we have many members entered and look forward to a great day out.

November’s gone and it’s full speed ahead into December, but apart from the obvious celebrations on the way, there, are so many races over all distances coming up, including three EOI Howth Marathons (13th/14th/27th).  Lanzarote is next week, best of legs to all travelling.  

But hold on, what about last week!  Lots to report on, we had a great team at the Valencia Marathon, commiserations to Frank McMorrow who didn’t get to run and well done to the crew who did.  Aoife Scott scored a nice pb at the Clontarf half, and Mark Conlon smashed his pb with a sub 20 min. parkrun win at Corkagh Park

Fab to see high numbers at training, keep up the good work.

The 2019 Grand Prix Series finished up on Saturday with the final race, the Horan Cup in Santry Demesne.  Last years race winner, George Brady was back to try and retain his title. Alas George lost out by the narrowest of margins, 0.02 of a second, probably due to Georges dog stopping for a tree break!

The race itself is 111 years old and is run over 6 miles of cross country. Well done to all members who took part in the series, we had some great results over the 8 months and certainly made our mark as well as having some great nights on the track. Thanks to Captain Tom for organising.

The final results of the series will be released on Friday 6th of December at 8.30 at Santry Stadium. DBRC are in 8th place and this may improve depending on the points awarded for the last race.

Things to note !

Our Club night out is on Saturday December 14th.  Hope to see everyone there!

Captain Ann reminds us that the Cross Country Season is in full swing and has recently posted about the upcoming masters (+35) event in St Annes Park in January.  All welcome!

A Fantastic weekend, EOI Lusk always delivers and then our very own race on Sunday.

.Weekly Roundup Monday 30th September 2019.

Which is better? To run longer? Faster? A new PB? To go further than you ever have before? Head out training with friends? Or run alone?  We have all of these this week ! Massive performances on top of all of the usual great and wonderful stuff you all get up to. 

We don't want to single anyone out for special praise, but sub 3 hours is always worth a shout out, Ger Copeland and Mark Messitt take a bow. Jenny Bowers enters the sub 4 hour group. Our Spartathlon warriors Alaistair Higgins, Anne Jennings and Rolando Espina, what can we say, big boys races indeed ! 

This Saturday we have EOI Lusk, and right after on Sunday our very own 5 miler.  Keep the push for sign ups. It's a great route and fab event, being in the Autumn this year adds an extra edge to the run this time and it should be special.

WEEKLY ROUNDUP Monday 9th September 2019

Hi and good evening to all you in Blue !  Last weeks results have been updated with the results for EOI event, again well done to all.   Nice results including some pb's.

It has been a busy week again to report on, great results, and good numbers at training. Keep up the good work and let's make big push on promoting the 5 miler in October !

Welcome back Mr Copeland, with a zuper 2nd place at Dingle and congrats to all who made the long journey to compete and represent the Club.  Carmel couldn't make the parkrun to get her three in a row but took a handy 4th place in the Bull Run 4 mile on Sunday instead.  Avril was sky scraping again running on the mountains.

DCM is fast approaching, but there is so much racing still to do before this, with at least three EOI events and the Monaghan weekend (28th/29th) plus the re-start of the Grand Prix series this week in Sanry on Thursday 12th.

The Dublin Half Marathon is on next week October 21st.   Some club members missed out on numbers so if you are unale to attend or not going to run, you know where to post !

Everyone deserves a shout out. If we have missed you, let us know and we will gladly pop you in there.  Lastly, Ger finally received his medal for the Dublin Marathon last year, 3rd place in age cat. Well done Sir and nice to get it, even if the delivery service was a trifle slow, we guess they couldn't catch up to you!

! Whatever you do, do it in BLUE !
