Results & Photos of the 2010 Dublin City Marathon

Conditions for the 2010 Dublin City Marathon were perfect with cool temperatures, blue skies and constant sunshine. There was a record entry for this year's event and there were plenty of faces from Cork in the race and out along the course. As an occasion, the Dublin City Marathon is truely the National Marathon with runners from all corners of Ireland taking part. It has a unique atmosphere that isn't found in any other Irish Marathon.

This year, I ran the Marathon from the unique perspective as one of the 3:45 pacers. One suprising aspect was the sheer number of runners on the road. I thought perhaps in the later stages, the road out ahead might clear a bit but it never did. The road was constantly full and at times, it got pretty congested when the route got narrow.

Results.....if you haven't seen them, you can check your times on the Dublin City Marathon website.

Thanks a million for doing a great job on the 3.45 pacing! I finally caught up with ye at around mile 24 and found ye really encouraging, so much so I managed a 3.42, delighted as it was my first!
