Dublin: 12 °C Friday 22 June, 2018

The country's biggest marathon and more in this week's fitness events guide

Plus a fancy dress run for the month that’s in it.

WINTER IS FAST approaching and soon enough the clocks will change and the evenings will be gone altogether…giving you a perfect excuse to do absolutely no exercise.

As always, if you’ve got an event coming up that you’d like mentioned, please get in touch at or
