Results and Photos of the 2009 Dublin City Marathon...26th Oct 2009 (Updated 1st Nov)
Conditions were ideal in Dublin for the Marathon.....dry, bright, not too warm and very little wind. The field for the Marathon was huge with in excess of 10,000 runners taking part with loads of support from the public out along the route. Looking around, it was obvious that a large number of runners from Cork travelled up for the event.
Results.......the results can be found HERE. Just one note...they seem to have got the clock time and chip time mixed. Obviously, the faster time is the chip time which is your actual time...i.e. the time it took you to cross the start mat and finish line. are a few for the moment...

I am sure I write on behalf of many when I say a very special word of THANKS to the very many people who travelled up from Cork to support those of us who ran the marathon.Your support was greatly appreciated.On a personal note I thought I was hitting the Wall or hallucinating when I saw Monica Twohig handing out water at a water station.Not only does she do trojan work for the BHAA in Cork she had to show the Dubs how to do it as well.Well done Monica you and your fellow supporters( too many to name) did "Cork Proud" again.

Well done on your time John. Also thanks for the weather update's before Mondays's marathon.It was great info.
On a side note: This was my 2nd marathon.My 1st was in June.Even though I ran faster in Dublin, I must say I felt the Dublin marathon was alot harder. Non stop up and down until mile 22(I think) ..I was wiped oput..Roll on Cork (i won't be so quick to judge again)..Ger
