Welcome to the Donore Harriers’ website. As you progress through our site, you will learn about the club’s proud history, achievements and its athletes who have contributed so much over the last 120 years.
Located on the banks of the river Liffey, in the scenic village of Chapelizod, it is a dream location for athletics of all standards. One hundred yards away, the magnificent Phoenix Park with its wide variety of terrain and running trails provides our members with superb training options. We also have an excellent 5 lane polyurethane track and infield equipped for sprint, distance, throwing and jumping disciplines.
We are a very busy club, competing during the winter in cross country and road events, and from April we are involved in Track and Field athletics. The indoor season begins in January and involves many of our younger athletes but also our senior throwers, sprinters and middle distance athletes.
We have a large membership, aged from 8 years to 90 and if you would like to join us just call by or email us for more info.
