Race Winners

In 2019 we had record numbers and a new course record (1h 42′ 32″) set by Mark Kenneally just 4 seconds ahead of Thomas Hayes  with Eric Keogh and Gary O Hanlon also breaking the old course .

Ladies winner was Isobel Oakes in 2h 7′ 2″ ahead of Jan Corcoran and Kealey Tidswell

In 2018 we had some great performances including 6 time race winner Gary O Hanlon

Gary subsequently placed 2nd in a PB time in the Irish National Championships at DCM 3 weeks after the Irish 3/4 Marathon which is a great testament for this DCM preparation event


General route for the 2019 Irish 3/4 Marathon is shown HERE.
Total climb over 19.66mile/ 31.65km route is only ~100m
This is ideal as it is ~3/4 of the climb in DCM

In 2020 we again plan start and finish the event at the Race HQ to give a better race experience.

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.
