Join us in the Dublin Marathon, the largest marathon in Ireland and now the 5th largest in Europe! By partnering with Depaul you will help to end homelessness and change the lives of those affected by it.

Taking place in October when conditions for marathon running are ideal, the route is a single lap, starting and finishing in Dublin’s historic city centre. Known as the ‘Friendly Marathon’ you’ll be cheered on and encouraged throughout the event by hundreds of enthusiastic supporters!
