Type: Road
Comments: Well organised Marathon through the streets of Dublin. Few small hills but nothing steep and long. Conditions blowy and rainy(23mph wind/35 mph gusts)put an end to me getting near 3 hrs but a great event extremely well supported and organised. Over 14,000 entrants including 15 Kenyans and 80 Elites. Wave start system helps where by sub 3:30's start at 9:50 a.m followed 5mins later by the 3:30-4:30 runners and then again 5 mins later by the over 4:30 runners. Balloon wearing pace setters too. My first marathon in 30 years and a pb so extremely happy but shattered at the end.
