I'm not 100% sure what the full story is with the results as I haven't really kept up to date with them. Someone e-mailed me to say that the results were incorrect and that complaints were being removed from the Dingle Marathon Facebook page.

In previous years, the results seemed pretty ok and all of those are listed on the race website for people to see. This year, they used Titan Sports for the timing and the results format on their website is pretty dire. Instead of a proper list which you can scan through, it's more of a searchable database. Their website is so bad that the results can't event be linked to directly.

The thing about the Dingle marathon is that it is a very popular event which brings a lot of visitors into the town for the weekend. They have a nice website and some of the images from the race are great. It's just a pity the results service is so bad.
