Hosting an event of this standard is a privilege and we are hugely indebted to a host of individuals and organisations who collectively strive to create the most enjoyable experience for all participants and visitors to the Dingle Marathon.
We send out a special thank you to the people of Dingle for supporting this event and allowing thousands of runners through their beautiful home. Please respect the environment you are in and be mindful of the local culture and community in which you are in. Without the help of the people of Dingle, this unique event would not be possible.
