Mellowes Park Junior Parkrun has proven to be a very successful weekly event.  Hosted every Sunday at 9.30am, it entails a 2km run / jog / walk and is open to all from four to fourteen years old.

Based in Finglas, the group meet at Mellowes Park, and more parents are welcome to take part, volunteer, or just come and watch.

It’s a totally free event and all registered participants receive an official time following each weekly run. All that is required is a one-off registration, which can be done on

The last parkrun of 2022 was hosted with a very special guest in situ – Santa himself. Huge congratulations to Amber, Dillon and Liam who all received their marathon wristbands on Sunday last, for completing 21 junior parkruns! 

“Well done to parents, kiddies and youth who have participated and we look forward to seeing ye all again in January when we will be back on Sunday, January 8 2023! Wishing you all a very healthy and happy Christmas and New Year!”
