Dublin Marathon

28th October 2018

The Dublin Marathon is an annual event taking place in Dublin on Sunday 28th October 2018. It is internationally known as the "Friendly Marathon" and is famous for the amazing reaction of the spectators that line the streets.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned marathoner, ARC Cancer Support Centres would love you to join the ARC Angel Team and raise vital funds.

Share in the excitement of running a world-class marathon in the knowledge that your support will enable ARC to support men and women living with cancer and those who care for them.

The course is largely flat and is a single lap, starting and finishing close to the City Centre. The start will be in Fitzwilliam Street Upper and the finish line will be in Merrion Square North. The route meanders through the Phoenix Park and along the historical Georgian streets of Dublin where thousands of spectators line the streets to cheer you on every step of the way. 

So why not challenge yourself in 2018 and sign up here. Once you are signed up contact Jessica with your details and ARC will assist you in your fundraising in any way we can.
