Tymon parkrun starts next to the car park on Limekiln Road in Dublin 12, about 5 minutes drive from the M50. It is a smallish, friendly and inclusive parkrun with numbers usually around 150 – 250 people of all ability levels.

Tymon is an inclusive parkrun and as well as small children in buggies, it welcomes bigger children and adults who need to be pushed around in jogging buggies and there are two available for families to try out on request.

Buggies can start where they see fit and as the field usually thins pretty quickly there are no issues during the two lap course which winds around the park on a tarmac path.

Facilities, cafes and playgrounds:

There are several large toilets by the car park and refreshments are  provided afterwards by the volunteer team. And sometimes cake too!

For the kids, there is a playground (which you will pass on the run).


This is a lovely run that is inclusive and welcoming and there is always help for anyone who needs it.
