Irish 3/4 Marathon as DCM Training

Our Race is ideally timed as it is 2 weeks after the Dublin Race Series’ 1/2 Marathon in the Phoenix Park and 3 weeks before DCM

Our race distance is 19.6 miles or 31.6km which is exactly as recommended for your final long training run 3 weeks pre DCM

Many have successfully made the big step from 1/2 to full marathon using our event as their final long training event

I’ve done a lot of events over the last few years including runs, cycles and adventure races and never have I given any feedback but I felt I had to after this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the race and the organisation and planning put in was second to none! From the parking to registration to the route and the finish line it was excellently organised! I couldn’t fault a thing! I will definitely be recommending it to anyone doing the marathon.
