2023 Dingle Half-Marathon sells out in 8-days

Despite the recent fall in numbers at road races, the Dingle Half-Marathon seems to be as popular as ever.

The next Dingle Half-Marathon takes place on the 2nd of September 2023. Entries for this event opened on the 30th of September 2022 and it sold out in just 8-days!

I'm not sure what the entry limit was but we can look at the previous results for some clues.

In 2019, there were 2045 finishers in the half-marathon and the number of entries was probably higher.

Then the pandemic came in 2020 with all of the cancellations in deferments. They got back on track this year (2022) and cleared the backlog by having a half-marathon in May (852-finishers) and the main one in September (1217 finishers). The combined total is just above the 2,000 mark again.

It's probably likely that the entry limit for the 2023 half-marathon was again in the region of 2000-2500. It's remarkable to have that level of interest for a race that is almost a year away.
