Results of the 2010 Dingle Half, Full and Ultra Marathon - Sat 4th Sept 2010
This year, there were 3 races on offer.
1) The Half-Marathon attracted around 1355 runners, up slightly on last years figure of 1326. The full results can be seen in XLS format HERE
2) A total of 382 runners took part in the full Marathon which is up from the 2009 figure of 314. The full results can be seen in XLS format HERE
When you compare the numbers to the Galway and Longford events then the Dingle certainly held it's own.
In the Half, Dingle got a huge turnout of 1355 which compares to 684 in Galway and 342 in Longford.
In the full Marathon, Dingle got 382 compared to 210 in Galway and 186 in Longford. Admittedly, the Galway and Longford events did go head to head yet still, it's hard to imagine that either event would have been as popular as Dingle.
The challenge of a 50 mile race is of course completing it rather than just time.
