Results & Photos of the 2013 Dublin City Marathon...Mon 28th Oct 2013

Conditions for this year's Dublin City Marathon were almost skies, sunshine, cool with no showers. There was a strong breeze but at street level with all of the buildings and the large crowds, it wasn't really an issue.

What made this year a lot more interesting as well was all of the Irish runners competing for the top prizes.

Most of those filmed on Fenian Street and at the finishing line were running between a 3 hour and 3.30 hour pace. Those filmed on Grand Canal Street were running between a 4.30 and 5 hour pace.

2) Start of the 2013 Dublin City Marathon....and this is only the first wave!

Hi John,
Perfect day for it and super organisation as usual... My only complaint is for the entry fee the goody bag at the expo and the finish line were very poor...I thought after completing a marathon at the very least a banana in the bag.. Otherwise a great day.. The support along the route was incredible well done dublin!!!

To improve irish marathon running let elites finance themselves in future like this year. 30k car for 1st to 7k for 2nd is some drop. Great year for irish athletics.

It was a pity there were no elite international (African) runners racing. Although it is great to see Irish runners claiming the top spots, I think Dublin marathon needs to attract high profile runners too.

No I don't think we need to get any fast African or Russian runners to improve the profile! What for?? The entries this year were higher than usual with still plenty of overseas runners from France, UK, USA...So let the Irish runners get the top prizes!!

I don't disagree, I think its great to see local athletes winning top prizes.
But, if you ask what attracts people to Berlin / Paris / London? What is it....
A fast course? (elites running sub 2:10 in previous years)
A chance to share an event with the best in the world?
A chance to participate in a 'major event'

People will have seen the 2:08 ran last year and will see that Dublin is a 'major event' and a fast course.
