It is already Europe’s 5th largest marathon with 20,000 participants, however, in 2019 the Dublin Marathon is set to grow by 2,500 to 22,500, a record number of participants.
The news that 2,500 additional entries are to be released on July 1st for the 40th edition of the event taking place on Sunday 27th October was a welcome announcement for the many runners, walkers and joggers who missed out on an entry before the event reached it’s original capacity back in December.
Speaking about the announcement yesterday Race Director Jim Aughney said
“I am delighted that the Gardai, Dublin City Council and all key authorities worked with us to facilitate an increase in entries by 2,500. We look forward to celebrating our 40th year with KBC and all the 22,500 runners that line up on the 27 October.”
The additional places will go on sale on 1st July, after existing participants are given the opportunity to avail a new refund window between 3rd-16th June. All entries will then go on sale to the general public at 9am on the 1st July for €90
