Start Date :  9th January

Aileen, Dublin

A very special running group, great atmosphere, supportive teachers, sociable & fun. Running and training outdoors on the beach all year in all weathers is an amazing experience - 10 stars!” 

Our aim is to make your running feel easier, more enjoyable and less of an effort. 

We show you how to feel great running and avoid injury. We build in strength, mobility, breathwork and FUN.

We want you to feel welcome and relaxed as part of our gang whether you are joining us in-person or online. 

There is no focus on competition with others. Run/walk at your own pace and take breaks as you need them.

We have 3 options for you

Virtual Coaching

Feel part of a running community without actually meeting in person. Mary starts each week with a new coaching video and you also have access to a growing library of training plans, yoga, strength and mobility classes.

Is it for me? 

If you can’t join us in person, the next best thing is to have us guiding and supporting you virtually. Suitable for those who can run 10-15 mins or more.

Fun Run Class

Helping you to get out the door, feel stronger and better running. In 1 hour we will combine running (at your pace) with all complementary stuff we know you don’t do at home! Strength, mobility, breathwork and lovely stretching.

Is it for me?

If you can run a minimum of 10-15 minutes VERY slowly you will be fine in this class. You can walk/run as you need to as you build back up your fitness.

Strength & Speed Class

Helping you to get faster, stronger and avoid injury. In 1 hour we will combine speed intervals (different each week) with strength, technique, mobility and breathwork and some fun of course while on the move.

Is it for me?

If you are running 5k (or longer) comfortable and regularly and want to get stronger and faster this is for you

Your Coaches

Mary and Aoife will support and guide you all the way through the term

Mary Jennings Running Coach

Mary Jennings

Mary is the author of the book Get Running published in 2019 by Gill Books. She is a regular columnist with The Irish Times and a frequent voice on radio, television and print. She has plenty practise on the roads herself having completed over 45 marathons and ultramarathons. As well as working with individual and groups, Mary has presented at many wellness events and coaches corporate groups.

Mary founded ForgetTheGym 15 years ago when she left her proper job to follow her passion for moving outdoors. A relative late comer to fitness, Mary understands what it’s like not to feel ‘sporty’ and loves building confidence in new runners and helping people reach their running goals. 

Aoife Slater

Just like Mary, Aoife discovered running as an adult and has seen it transform not only her appearance but also her lifestyle. From being a self-confessed overweight and unfit couch potato, things changed in 2009 when she built up slowly from walking to running 10k and hasn’t looked back. She truly caught the running bug, qualified as a personal trainer in 2011 and has since replaced the 9-5 office job with running shoes.

From parkruns to marathons, Aoife has seen running change her body and her mindset and today coaches our runners who need support, motivation and a gentle nudge in the right direction.
