2020 Dublin Marathon Cancelled...


The organisers of the Dublin Marathon have announced that the 2020 event will NOT be held.

Anyone who has an entry will have it deferred to 2021. Alternatively, a refund can be obtained.

In a statement, race director Jim Aughney said: “We know this is extremely disappointing for all runners, especially those who secured marathon entries. We made the difficult decision in the best interest of the health and wellbeing of all those involved in making our events such a success from runners, supporters, volunteers, sponsors, to suppliers. We explored many alternatives for running the events safely but ultimately none were viable.”

Disappointing but the right call - choice of refund or deferral is fairly decent

probably the end of a DCM or a CCM or any marathon for a number of years
