Looking for something to do this weekend and wondering what’s on? We’ve got you sorted. Here’s the best of what’s on in Dublin this weekend.

What’s on in Dublin?

Chi Running with Catherina McKiernan

Join Irish Olympian and world medallist, Catherina McKiernan for a day-long chi running workshop, suitable for runners of all levels; even beginners. The workshop includes video analysis, individual diagnostic and recommendations, training drills, a Q&A section and easy and relaxed runs at a pace to suit the individual.

Chi Runners are taught to combine the Tai Chi principles of focus and flow with the power and energy of running. Runners learn to engage the core, align the posture, relax the limbs, and take plentiful, light steps, landing midfoot. By directing your attention to the process of running (form and technique), you’ll reduce stress on the body, which will lead to hugely improved running technique with fewer injuries, improved speed, and more pleasurable, relaxing runs.

Saturday, 9 March from 10am – 5pm. Tickets are priced at €130 and are available here
