Membership & Joining Up
DDAC caters for runners of all ages and all abilities from beginner to advanced. On the track, on the road, cross country and in a variety of distances from 60metres up to ultra-marathons. Whatever your distance you can be sure someone else has done it or is in training for it. Pace wise you can be reassured you won't be training alone either. Unless you're Usain Bolt, you have a fair chance of finding other members to train with of a similar ability. People take up running for many reasons- to get fit, weight management, to make friends or to try something new. Whatever your reasons for joining you are not alone with over five hundred members you can guarantee someone else started for the exact same reason as you. Many people feel a little anxious about joining up and with so much going on with all the different groups its best to get in contact with the club before you join.
We have over 300 adults and 200+ kids so fill in the form above and let us figure out where you fit in.
The first night...what to expect!
For your first session it is always easier if you can make yourself known beforehand to us so the group leaders can keep an eye out for you. Other than that you will need some running gear, a pair of trainers and off you go! After your first two sessions, if you decide it's what you have been missing your whole life then there is a membership fee of €130 which must be paid, this also includes mandatory Athletics Ireland registration and insurance. After that you are part of the red army and happy training!
