The Dublin Marathon has been running every October since 1980 and is now a part of the Dublin Race Series.
The course is perfectly matched for marathon running being mostly flat and consisting of just one lap. The winner of the race wins €15,000 plus there’s €5,000 for any competitor who can break the record time for the marathon!
Dublin is also host to the Women’s Mini Marathon which has taken place every June since 1983. This event is actually the largest women-only event of its kind in the world.
