Lottery entry for the 2022 Dublin City Marathon opens 6th January

The organisers of the Dublin City Marathon (30th Oct 2022) have announced that an online lottery system for entries will open on Thursday the 6th of January 2022 for 1-week.

Details below...


Lottery Places Available - 20.12.2021

We are delighted to announce that a limited number of places will be made available for the 2022 Dublin Marathon via a lottery system. An application can be made for these places on the Dublin Marathon website from Thursday 6th January until midnight on Thursday 13th January. Please note that only one entry per person will be accepted.

A fee of €15 per lottery entry will apply; € 12 will be refunded if not successful with a €3 administration charge.  If successful, the lottery entry fee will be redeemable against the entry fee of €110*.
Registrants will learn their entry status by email / SMS on Friday, 17th January. They will have until midnight on Friday 21st January to redeem the offer.

Any places not redeemed will be offered in round two of the lottery from Tuesday 1st February, with offers needing to be redeemed by midnight Monday 7th February 2022.

*The Dublin Marathon is a not-for-profit organisation with entry fees, funding the management, development and promotion of the Dublin Marathon.  The entry fee covers the escalating costs of event management from insurance, soaring prices of products and materials, and anticipated additional safety measures needed due to Covid-19.

The one obvious thing that jumps out is the price...€110! I'm sure the organisers will get some grief for this but the simple fact is that it will sell regardless even at that price.

I'll have a number of training programmes for the Dublin City Marathon in 2022. If anyone wants more info now then email johndesmondrunning AT gmail DOT com
