  1. Hi Carmel,

    At the moment there is no fit4life group in Clare. However there are several athletic clubs in Clare who may have adult group runs. Most of these clubs are predominantly juvenile clubs but several have adult sections.

    See https://www.claresportspartnership.ie/index.php?option=com_mtree&task=listcats&cat_id=25&Itemid= for a full list of Clare athletic clubs.

    See here https://www.athleticsireland.ie/content/?p=3238 for a list of the existing fit4life clubs in addition to those listed above.
