Brief Overview and a Little Bit of History!!!

Donadea Running Club was the brainchild of Jo Cawley, who began the club in July 2007. On moving to the area Jo being an avid athlete herself, fell in love with the beautiful forest park that we now use as our training ground. On making some enquiries, she discovered that there was no active running club in the area, and she made it her mission thankfully, to form Donadea Running Club.

Since then the club has grown from strength to strength. What started as a little sign on the wall in the Small Coffee Shop within the forest park; has now become one of the most well represented running clubs in the Kildare area. Our Green Singlets we are proud to say are now highly recognisable at many of the country's most prestigious running events, with many of our members bringing home prizes on both national and county levels.
