Still Time To Enter Dublin Marathon



The 2016 Dublin Marathon attracted almost 20,000 and as a result became the fourth largest marathon in Europe. There is still time for you to book a place at the 2017 race, which takes place on 29 October.

The marathon is known for its relatively flat course, starting in Fitzwilliam Street Upper and finishing in Merrion Square close to the historic Trinity College.

Even if you don’t fancy running, you can also walk the course (starting at the back). With a start time of 9am and four waves, you could be in one of the many pubs with a refreshing pint of Guinness by mid-afternoon.  

Taking place late in the autumn, the race is likely to take place in cool temperatures of around 12-14°C.

Dublin is an ancient city founded over 1000 years ago by Vikings. Today, the city is famous for its sightseeing, nightlife, pubs, restaurant, literary history and the very friendly one million inhabitants.

This is an ideal opportunity to sample and explore the historic sights and landmarks of the city while taking part in one of Europe’s most popular marathons.
