  • Welcome

    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 on completion of just one marathon. A medal can be presented on completion of 25 , 50, 75 marathons. These can be purchased by members and awarded by a selected member at a convenient race. They can also be posted out.

    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 download Membership Form Above.

    For those who are already members and need to renew their membership please download above membership form also which will help us keep up to date on any changes to emails, phones numbers etc....
