Race and Route Information

Details of our New Course for 2016 coming here shortly smiley

Our race route is 31.646km / 19.664 miles long

It is an ideal Dublin or other autumn Marathon preparathon event.

The use of this race as an ideal marathon preparation event is clearly demonstrated by our 2011 winner Linda Byrne (Winning DCM in 2h 36' to qualify for 2012 Olympics) and indeed our 2012 winner Barry Minnock who was 3rd Irish man home in DCM ( 2h 18') and 2nd Irishman (9th overall) in 2014 DCM after his 2nd place in the Athlone 3/4 Marathon yes

Our 2015 event was used as specific DCM prep race by 2014 DCM winner & 2015 3rd placed Eulid Too and other top Irish athletes smiley

Our new race based will , like out old base in the village of Glasson, provide an ideal midlands base with good access from all parts of the country. 


We will have chip timing, with splits for each quarter-marathon, to verify the achievement of your ¾ marathon personal best.
