Breakdown of Cork clubs at the 2018 Dublin City Marathon

The provisional individual results for club runners in the 2018 Dublin City Marathon are now up on the Athletics Ireland website. I had a look at these and extracted the numbers for each of the Cork clubs (5 or more members)...

The two city clubs Eagle AC and St.Finbarr's AC had the highest number of members taking part with 23 and 22 respectively. Grange Fermoy AC had the third largest with 19.

As the results are still provisional, there are no doubt a few missing but it shouldn't really change the chart much.

Looking at the numbers breaking 3 hours, it was up this year for Cork club runners. In 2015, 20 broke the 3 hour barrier. In 2016, it was 27. In 2017, it was 27 and this year it was 32!

Any sign of the Rosscarbery Steam Runners there? 23 of us ran the Dublin Marathon this year...?

Clubs were all over the place as can be seen from the "23" East Cork "members" who took part. So I believe this graph isn't a true reflection on Cork clubs. Plenty of clubs missing that had more members than a lot above.

Ref Rosscarbery, they have only 4 listed in provisional results.

Ref East Cork, they have lots of people listed as East Cork who are probably not members at all. The club has only about 30 members and only a percentage of them are running marathons.

Added Watergrasshill.

Mt.Hillary also missing from the provisional results.

St Catherine's had 6 (2 sub 3 hours) listed on the provisional results. We had 8 in total so 2 got missed somewhere. We did have to update our clubs with Athletics Ireland before the race as some were listed as the complete wrong club (not even down as a Cork club) so something did go wrong when Athletics Ireland got the starting list.
