About the Dublin Marathon

Join the 4th biggest marathon in Europe and raise vital funds for Rethink Mental Illness. 

The marathon is a fast, flat course that will start on Leeson Street Lower, finish on Mount Street Upper, and follow a similar route to previous years. It is a fantastic opportunity to see Dublin's landmarks!

Key information

The Marathon will have five start times, starting with the wheelchair participants at 8:40 am. They will be followed by Wave 1 at 8:45 am, Wave 2 at 9:05 am, Wave 3 at 9:25 am, and Wave 4 at 9:45 am. The event organisers will contact participants in September with their wave details.

You will collect your race pack at the expo, which includes your kit bag, number, baggage tag, chip and pins for your number. Do not leave without collecting your race pack. The cut-off time for pack collection is 6 pm Sunday 26th October.
