I'm very new to all this, have set myself a personal challenge to complete the Dublin Marathon, I have been advised to enter a half marathon though as part of my training.
Is it mostly groups of people that know each other that go to these events? Bit nervous, not sure if I should just bite the bullet and do it alone or not do it really.
Hi David lovely medal design congratulations. I'm still too scared to enter though I m worried about not being able to complete the course in time. A half a half but the full is the unknown for a plodder
Just realised I ve posted in the half marathon and there are two threads whoops! One for half and one for full. I am going to try and book time off, bite the bullet and do the full. I must admit the people on this thread are very encouraging. I hope thats ok David. I will give it all I've got so that I get round in less than 6hrs as I ve never done one, I don't know how long it takes
Just like to say that this was a great race. I appreciated the price(!), the organisation, the route AND the lovely meal afterwards. I am looking forward to next year as I would like to improve my time!
Does anyone know how many runners (approx) will enter this. Thinking about entering this as we will used to live in surbiton, although based in Qatar at present. Just need to decide how the last two months of training will work in the summer over here. Sounds like a great event, fab location.
Definately thinking about this as I'm doing my first marathon in october (chester) so this fits well, bit worried I may have to buys some trail shoes (but then again I really should anyway).
What's the situation with the food afterwards with regards to non runners (ie can my wife join this having waited around for over two hours for me).
When do entries normally get filled (probably the day before I finally decide to enter )
bullet bitten and entry in, just hope it's dry but not too hot , anyone else definately in for this?
I'm in!! Am i being dim - can't see the medal image, only the Bewl one?
I'm in as well
Thinking about doing this
Still a bit worried that I might need to buy some trail shoes
As NellyP as mentioned do we need trail shoes for his race or could we run in normal trainers?
