Irish athlete Sean Hehir recorded the fastest time in the KBC Virtual Dublin Marathon in the men's field running 2:21:43.

The Metro/St. Brigid’s AC athlete was grateful to be able to run again after he was struck by a car last December and is still recovering from the injuries he sustained.

Mary Walsh of Raheny AC produced the fastest women's time with 2:57:47. Walsh is coached by Olympic Marathon runner Mick Clohisey. 

They were joined by over 13,000 runners over this October bank holiday weekend who ran within 5km from their home in the villages, towns, and cities of Ireland and by many around the world.

This year's scheduled Dublin marathon was a sellout but was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Entries for the marathon and 2021 race series are valid for next year for those who wish to keep them.
