Affidea ExpressCare Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin is the most fun you’ll ever have running.  This toe-tapping, head-banging, air-guitaring goodness of a race route is lined with live bands and entertainment. Starting in the new location of Royal Hospital Kilmainham, one of the finest 17th-century buildings in Ireland, runners are in … MORE

    Well worth the trip. We had a great time. Took a mixology class at the Jameson distillery the night before (probably should have picked a different day) but it was great. The course was great, the people was fantastic. Do this race!

    Point-to-point course (more downhill than uphill); nice performance t-shirt; good bands performing along the course and at the finish festival; half of the race within Phoenix Park (which was not very scenic); good value for entrance fee; well-organized race

    What is similar to other Rock N Roll races:
    -Multiple weekend events. I did the 5k on Saturday and the half on Sunday. The entire 5k was in a park, the half had different locations for the start and the finish.
    -If you compete in two races, you get a “Remix” medal.
    -If you’ve competed in an US race + this race, you get a “World Rocker” medal.
    -All the medals were nice.
    -The race shirts were great.
    -Rock N Roll is a good organizer, so things are mostly smooth.

    What is different than other Rock N Roll races:
    -The Expo is non-existent. It is really just a bib pick-up.
    -There is limited water. No water on the course for the 5k. For the half, they gave out bottles of water a few times during the race.
    -It was a bit of a pain in the butt to get to the start/finish.
    -This race (like other European races I’ve done) have urinal tents in addition to the regular port-o-potties – I wish US races would add this!! It speeds things up.
    -I didn’t think that there were many bands along the course, but that didn’t bother me.
    -Of all the races I’ve done, this is the only one that did non-alcoholic beer at the beer tent (no alcohol was available at all). That shocked me. For Ireland?

    It’s great race weekend and a nice place to visit. I would definitely recommend.

    I liked Dublin Rock´n Roll Half Marathon. The course takes you from the docklands in the east to the huge park in the west of the city and the atmosphere is quite good. Right after finishing the half marathon runners have the possibility to run a fun race of about 2,5 k.

    Second time runner. Participated in 5k, Halfmarathon and fun run. Lots of swag but this years expo was very small, though centrally located in trinity college. In comparison: cheap entry. Start is at the port, finish in Phoenix park. The course itself has some sights but Dublin is more for the vibe. Free Shuttles from the park to catch buses/ trams.

    First Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon in Dublin ever 🙂 It was a cool race with a live band every mile, and a concert at the finish. The course led through the city center, which was great, and of course, the afterparty took place mostly in pubs. Everything went smoothly, and I’ll definitely will be back some day. The race was early in the morning, so the timing was a bit off for the finish concert, but great fun nonetheless.
