5 Reasons Why You Should Take Part In Pride Run

Although there are definitely more than five, here a some of the top reasons why you should take part in this year's Pride Run.


Achieve A Goal

Maybe you have always wanted to start running or to compete in a 5K. Even if you are a seasoned runner, maybe you would like to set a new personal best.


Swag Bag

Each participant in the Pride Run gets a Pride Run t-shirt, medal and a goodie bag!


Meet New Pals

One great thing about Dublin Front Runners is the group dynamic. With over 800 participants set to take part in the Pride Run, you will have tonnes of support and encouragement along the way. It’s also a positive and healthy way to get involved with the community during the Pride festivities.

As DFR member Sandra Galvin put it, “What I like is that people don’t look at your ability, that you can run 10k in less than an hour – if you run two hours they nicely will wait!”


Multiple Feel Good Factors

We all know that it’s scientifically proven exercise makes you feel good! Well to add to that feel good factor, your participation in this year’s Pride Run will help to raise funds for three very worthy causes in our community.

This year’s charities are TENI, Gay Switchboard and the Dublin Lesbian Line. Last year the Pride Run raised a whopping €12,000!


Discover The Great Outdoors

The DFR train three times a week in the beautiful surroundings of the Phoenix Park and it can be a great escape when living in a busy city.

Dublin Pride Run takes place at 7.30pm, Friday, June 22nd, 2018.
