Virtual Dublin City Marathon 2020

It was certainly a Dublin City Marathon weekend like no other this year with members having to complete the annual event virtually.

Congratulations to our many club members who took part over the weekend - there seems to have been plenty of members who took part in the 10k, half and full distances.

One of the stand out performances from the weekend has to have been Mike McGrath's brilliant 3.23 marathon - Sunday's run was Mike's first marathon in 27 years! All of the lockdown training certainly paid off , with Mike pacing the race perfectly and running a huge negative split. Well done and congrats to Mike.

3.23 Marathon for Mike McGrath!

Another very impressive performance came from Robyn Dransfield who broke the 2 hour barrier for the Half marathon for the first time! Pacer Daniel seems to have done his job perfectly with a time of 1.59.44 for Robyn! :-) 

Robyn's Support Crew at the Finish Line!

The DCM races were made much more difficult this year with the 5km restrictions but people worked out new routes and made it work for them whilst still sticking to the guidelines. It was also great to see families and neighbours supporting each other so well and helping each other reach their chosen targets. See below for a few photos sent on by members over the weekend. Well done to all.
