Superstition in sport – research project
Welcome to the 100 Marathon Club Ireland website.
Running a marathon is an amazing achievement. The 100 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 club was formed in November 2010.
You can join the club following completion of one or more marathons. A medal can be presented on completion of 25 , 50, 75 marathons. These are purchased by members and can be 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 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.
Club members wishing to receive achievement awards for 25, 50, 75 or 100 marathons can send in a list of completed marathons to firstname.lastname@example.org
Lists should be submitted for verification on a spreadsheet giving details of each marathon you have completed (event name, location, date, race number and finish time)
