About Us

Donabate parkrun is a FREE weekly 5k event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:30am in Newbridge House, Hearse Road, Donabate, Co. Dublin.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, regardless of age or gender, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy the outdoors and get physically active. We want to encourage people to run, jog, walk and volunteer together – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in the Coach House Cafe which is close to the start/finish area. 10% discount is available on presentation of your barcode on Saturday morning - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your parkrun that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an part of this community.

So whether you're a complete novice looking to get yourself started or a regular wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
