Welcome to Brothers Pearse Athletic Club – Founded in 1956.
Brothers Pearse Athletic Club is based in Cherryfield (Dodder Valley) Park, on the Firhouse Road. The club has approximately 400 members spanning all ages from juvenile to adults.
Both the Adult and Juvenile sections are thriving and have produced many champions at County, Interprovincial and National Level. Many of our athletes compete at the highest level in a wide variety of competitions from 100m to marathon (and beyond!) and across all the field sports. The club enters teams in athletics competitions through the year – track and field in summer, cross country in winter. We encourage all athletes to take part in competition, whatever their ability. Our coaches have many Athletics Association of Ireland accreditations and have many years’ experience behind them.
But this is just one aspect of the club. We have ran many Couch 2 5K courses for adult non-runners. This has been life changing for many of those who have taken part. We also have a strong inclusivity ethos in the club and will always try and cater for those who are not as strong as the rest of us.
The philosophy of the club is embedded in the belief that ‘Running is to be enjoyed’. Whilst we train hard, we actively promote the ‘fun and craic’ at our sessions. We enjoy our social occasions and regularly travel outside Dublin and Ireland for competitions, all of which have been great fun.
Membership is open to Adults and anyone who is interested is welcome to come along to try a few sessions without obligation. However membership is limited for some of our younger juvenile groups mainly due to a lack of facilities. We have a waiting list for these groups and priority will be given to those athletes who take part in competitions.
Come and join us for a happier healthy you.
