Run the Irish Life Dublin Marathon

The Dublin Marathon has come a long way since its inception in 1980, quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best organised city marathons. The crowd support in Dublin is amazing, with very few stretches along the course without spectators there to cheer on runners. The race starts on Fitzwilliam Street Upper and finishes at Merrion Square North - both easily accessible from Dublin city centre hotels. The course is mostly flat with a long stretch through Phoenix Park, and while there aren’t many hills, there is one uphill section at mile 21 ready to test your legs.

Are you up for the challenge?

Every child needs a hero. By taking on the Irish Life Dublin Marathon, you'll be doing something extraordinary for seriously ill children and young people from across the UK.
