Interested in experiencing Ireland and running the 41st anniversary edition of the KBC Dublin Marathon? Come and join Marathon Tours & Travel for one of our top rated trips, we still have guaranteed race entries available with our packages!
Dublin is an ancient city founded by the Vikings more than 1,000 years ago. Today, it is a vibrant city with more than one million inhabitants. It is famous for its friendliness, beautiful Georgian architecture, literary history, pubs and nightlife.
With a record of 25,000 runners set to run in 2021, Dublin now hosts Europe’s fourth largest marathon. The running of the event, set for Sunday October 24, has sold out early in the last few years, reflecting the continued growth in marathon running as a mass participation sport in Ireland. Come enjoy the ‘luck of the Irish’ this coming October!
The Dublin Marathon is an Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group Qualifying Race.

I had decided at the beginning of the year that I wanted to run Dublin because I had never been to Ireland and thought it would be a great way to start my journey to the Seven Continents Club. While trying to register, I discovered that I had to book through Marathon Tours and recognized the name from my work with Back on My Feet Boston (Marathon Tours is a sponsor). I also figured that if I wanted to get more adventurous with my running, it would be beneficial to work with a company who could make that experience as amazing as possible, and I was not wrong.
I am one of the running Ambassador's for the Fleet Feet Marathon Running group. I sent out an email tonight to my group in regards to the Indy Monumental marathon this weekend that many in my group are running. In this email I told them about the wonderful experience I had with Marathon Tours and was very pleased at how well they organized all meals, day trips, travel, and group receptions. I would highly recommend using this group if you are considering running a foreign marathon.
Definitely enjoyed the extensions! So glad I splurged with both the pre-race and post-race extensions. It will be on my list to return to Belfast next time visiting Ireland.
