Combining a short break with running in the marathon, Lynda and Kaylee Hawkins headed off to Dublin Fair City, writes Terry Bewes.
This is the 37th time this race has been run and it grows bigger each year to now become the fourth largest Marathon in Europe.
This year 19,500 runners lined up at the start. The race starts in Fitzwilliam Square and visits many of the historical and popular sites of this amazing and vibrant City. It is so popular that it was sold out by the end of August.
To assist the runners there are pace setters from three to five hours at 10 minutes intervals.
