Lottery Entry Process for KBC Dublin Marathon 2020
The Dublin Marathon organisers are aware of the concern caused by the changes to the entry process to regular participants in 2020.
Organisers have made the decision to guarantee a race entry for anyone who has participated in one of the last three editions of the KBC Dublin Marathon namely, 2017, 2018 or 2019 event. Eligible participants will be able to guarantee their place in the 2020 event provided they enter within 72 hours of receiving a unique URL enabling them to do so. The URL will be issued at 12 noon on Friday, 1st November.
The move to the lottery system for the 2020 KBC Dublin Marathon is in addition to the increased demand experienced over the last number of years and is to gauge the total level of interest in participation in the Dublin marathon.
