Dundrum AC – Dublin City Marathon

The Dublin City Marathon was held on Sunday, October 27. We had 8 club athletes take on the challenge of racing the long 42km race. This is the highest number of entrants from our club in quite some time. We had some fine performances with 3 PB’s, 4 debuts and a Veteran Marathon runner.

First home for the club was Michael J Ryan in 2:43:47, he was followed by Michael Ryan 2:52:48 and Linda Grogan 2:54:19. What fantastic performances from all three. Superb quick times and all three got PB’s.

It should be noted it is not an easy task to break the 3 hour barrier. To have three out of 8 club members to do so is fantastic. Next we had Mairead Julian making a fantastic Marathon debut in 3:41:47. She was followed by PJ Holmes 3:55:49 completing another marathon. He has completed over 40 marathons. What an achievement.

Next we had three more athletes making their Marathon debuts Christina Fryday 4:14:34, Patricia Moloney 4:14:35 and PJ Collins 5:19:06. Congratulations from all of your club members.

Marathon // Europe // Germany // October

10/11/2020 // Munich, Germany // $91.00


The cityscape of the home of Munich Marathon is characterized by centuries-old buildings and numerous museums. The Bavarian capital is known for the annual Oktoberfest and it’s sportiness. In the old town on the central Marienplatz there are landmarks such as the neo-Gothic New Town Hall, whose popular carillon plays melodies and stories from the 16th century.

The city of München Marathon is a natural habitat of Mediterranean-style street cafes, highbrow art and high-tech industry, Germany’s unofficial southern capital is a flourishing success story that revels in its own contradictions. If you’re looking for Alpine clichés, they’re all here, but the Bavarian metropolis has many an unexpected sides to be discovered.

With that being said, the Munich Marathon is the place to be!!

Whoever has competed in one of the editions of München Marathon knows that tingling sensation. The concentration and tension of the runners is tangible; only subsiding when the starter’s pistol finally sounds and your sightseeing tour through Munich starts right away.
