The course of the Adidas Dublin Marathon is a classic city loop with start and finish lines in the city centre near the famous Trinity College. The course is fairly flat but with a couple of climbs of about 50 m altitude. Along the way runners will – that is, if they have any energy left – appreciate the historic atmosphere of Georgian Dublin and the green oases of several parks and squares which are part of the course. The race finishes at Merrion Square where a couple of Ireland’s most celebrated writers, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats, have resided.
