Members of Tafelta Club with their new gear.
Recently, 15 members took part in the Dublin City Marathon with five members taking part in their first marathon. Sunday morning presented ideal weather conditions for the marathon course around Dublin City centre.
The course started in the City with runners heading to Phoenix Park for approximately four miles of the course they then made their way to Dolhpin’s Barn which marked halfway. For the last half of the course runners passed UCD, the RDS and finished their run in Merrion Square. After numerous weeks of dedicated training all their hard work paid off, congratulations to everyone who ran the Dublin Marathon.
