Traffic Chaos at the 2017 Dublin Half-Marathon

The Half-Marathon in Dublin this year moved from the Phoenix Park near the city centre out to Donabate in North County Dublin and the result seems to have been traffic carnage on the M1. The race was originally planned to start at 9am and had to be postponed as runners couldn't get to the start line.

The runners finally got underway at 10am. However, some runners turned back such was the volume of traffic. The race had 9,200 entries.

The organisers issued this statement....“On behalf of the wider team, our race director Jim Aughney would like to extend his sincere apologies for the Dublin Half Marathon today. A full traffic management review will be underway with all stakeholders present,”.
