It has been announced that 2,500 extra entries will go on sale for the KBC Dublin Marathon on Monday, July 1, ahead of the late October marathon.

This follows the selling-out of the 20,000 entries last December, close to a year before the event takes place on Sunday, October 27.

The level of entrants has been increased from 20,000 to a record number of 22,500 people following an agreement with key authorities.

The 2019 Dublin Marathon will celebrate its 40th year anniversary with KBC with the 13 runners who took part in the first Dublin Marathon in 1980 and all 39 Marathons since present to mark the announcement.

In addition to the 2,500 extra entries to go on sale, some other additional places are also expected to be made available following an opportunity for current entrants to avail of a refund window from 9am on Monday, June 3.

The refund will be available on ‘Manage My Bookings’ available via the entrant’s confirmation link.

Fingal’s marathon runners should also note entries are now also open for the 2019 KBC Race Series which starts with the South Dublin 10k on Sunday, July 21.

This will be followed by the Frank Duffy 10 Mile on Saturday, August 24 and the KBC Dublin Half Marathon on Saturday, September 21 – both in the Phoenix Park.
