Welcome to the Marathon Club Ireland website.
Running a marathon is an amazing achievement. Marathon Club Ireland was formed to encourage all aspects of marathon running in Ireland, from participation to organisation. We are a group of like minded individuals who complete 26.2 mile races for fun, for a sense of achievement and mostly in a quest to complete 100 marathons, or more.
Influenced by the highly respected 100 Marathon Club UK, the Irish club was formed in November 2010.
You can join the club following completion of one or more marathons. Achievement award medals can be presented on completion of 25 , 50, 75 marathons. These can be purchased by members (following verification of marathon lists) and awarded by a selected member at a convenient race or sent out by post.
The prestigious 100 Marathon Medal is awarded free from the club with one stipulation, that is that the awardee must be a paid member for at least one year prior to the year they receive the award. This is due to the fact that the 100 medal costs the club (wholesale) more than a members annual fee.
If you would like to apply to join the club, you can download a membership form or apply online (N.B. you must have completed at least one full marathon to be eligible for membership)
For existing members wishing to renew their membership, please follow online renewal link or download the membership form and send it by post to the club secretary (details are on the form) to ensure that your contact details are up to date.

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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
