Value in what way Eamonn? In terms of prepping for a marathon? Ten miles and half marathon good race distances to get you started longer.

Tbf usually at the later times they have to start opening the roads up so there are some issues.

Does anyone here know if there will be entries available for Dublin Marathon in 2022 or will it be closed due to the volume of carry overs from 2020 & 2021?
It is what it is. Presumably.

I tip my hat to marathon runners. I ran a 10k yesterday and got it tight enough. Would love to commit to a marathon at some point. Would there be any value in starting with a half marathon? My level of fitness is I could go a 5k with no training, a 10k with about a week of preparation, and Iíve never done a half.

A half is definitely a good goal. I found the step up from 10K to half is not too bad. A marathon is a much bigger leap. I would say if you could get to a 10K in a week you could make a half in a month (though it would be worth training for longer).

Donít think there will be any available. Iíve seen people ask them on Twitter and that has been their answer. Now unless there will be a few available nearer the time because people who have entries have to drop out for whatever reason, but it will have been 3 years since a Dublin Marathon took place so next October is gonna be very popular and anyone that has a entry will be keen to do it.
Luckily I still have my entry from 2020

Possible chance of a lottery for limited entries if enough people claim a refund according to this in the comments underneath the post.
