I never thought returning to Europe would happen this soon. My husband and I just celebrated our honeymoon in October 2014 and visited France, Italy and London. It was a lovely trip, however Ireland has always been on my bucket list and I am beyond blessed for getting this opportunity.
The Dublin Marathon course is very flat and the weather in October is around 50 degrees. In other words, marathon perfection. Walkers are welcome as the race course is open for 7 hours. There is not a lottery (yet) for this event so runners get guaranteed entry until the 15,000 spots are full. It's 90 euros to register, and with our current exchange rate, this would make the perfect time to run a marathon in Europe!.
2015 Dublin Marathon Medal. The medal will pay homage to he Mansion House, Dublin which is celebrating it's 300th anniversary this year. The Dublin Marathon Course course is a loop with start and finish lines in the city center near Trinity College. The race finishes at Merrion Square where a couple of Ireland’s most celebrated writers, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats, have resided.
