This was the 31st year of the Lifestyle Sports – adidas Dublin Marathon, which was run through the historic Georgian streets of Dublin, Ireland’s largest and capital city. The weather was great and with 13,000+ runners this was an event that was hard to miss on Monday Bank Holiday morning.
Kenyan Moses Kangogo Kibet beat the course record of 2.09.07 held since 2007 by Russian Aleksey Sokolov, with a PB time of 2.08.58.
The first lady to cross the finish line; Tatiana Aryasova of Russia, also smashed the current course record (2.27.22)held since 2003 by Ruth Kutol of Kenya, crossing the finish line comfortably in 2.26.13.
Time to celebrate with a pint of the black stuff. :)
Some celebrated way before the race started. I dont think they were even aware of the Dublin Marathon :)
