A smaller group from the club took to the streets of Dublin to run the 2016 Dublin City Marathon than in previous years. This was primarily the result of a large contingent heading abroad earlier in the month to take on the Amsterdam Marathon! (race report pending I hear).

For the first-time Dublin sold out in August this year. A combination of the switch to Sunday and the 1916 commemoration medal led to a record entry with a little under 17,000 toeing the start line.

Race day conditions were perfect, no wind, no rain and temperatures not set to rise above 12 degrees. The support from the crowds along the whole route in Dublin was phenomenal. It can be overwhelming at times and you find yourself smiling and laughing between gritting your teeth and arguing with your legs to keep going! Special mention to friends, family and club mates who placed themselves strategically alone the route armed with jellies, flat coke and much needed words of encouragement. The last mile was a wall of noise with people cheering encouragement at you all the way to the finish line.
