• Membership for 2023 is now open for renewal and new memberships

    (Membership is for the calendar year Jan – Dec) 


    Long standing Marathon Club Ireland member, Leo Lundy, is doing an observational study of Multi Marathon Runners for his masters in Biomedical engineering, asking questions about running history, injuries, recovery, physical and cognitive KPI’s and what has happened to us since COVID.


    The survey from Trinity College, facilitated by Leo Lundy, was a great success having over 270 respondents from Ireland alone plus others from 39 countries around the world, with over 50% of respondents having completed 100 marathons or more. 

    A draw for a free MCI race credit took place after the MCI event in Capparoe, Co. Tipperary on 11/2/2023 and was won by Jim Walsh. All those who completed the survey and entered the draw were included.

  • Welcome to the Marathon Club Ireland / 100 Marathon Club Ireland website.

    Marathon Club Ireland was formed to encourage all aspects of marathon running in Ireland, from participation to organisation. Formed in November 2010 the club is a non-profit body run by a committee of elected volunteers.


    Club membership is open to those who have completed one or more marathons and achievement awards can be purchased to mark the completion of 25 , 50, 75 & 100 marathons.


    Achievement medals/awards for 20, 50 or 75 marathons can be purchased by members, following verification of their marathon list, for presentation by a selected member at a convenient race.


    The prestigious 100 Marathon Medal is usually awarded free by the club, on condition that the recipient is a paid club member for the relevant year and at least one year immediately prior to the year in which they receive the award.

    Members wishing to receive any achievement awards should submit their list of completed marathons, on an excel spreadsheet (sample provided below) to marathonlists@yahoo.ie for verification, allowing at least 2 weeks for processing. Once the list has been verified medals can be paid for in person or via our online shop

    Marathon lists for should give full details of each marathon completed (official event name, location, date, race number and finish time and links to results website where possible)
