The Joe Duffy BMW Half Marathon and 5 Mile run on Saturday the 7th of Julywas a resounding success as always. The sunshine made the day extra special, with clear blue skies and everybody in fantastic spirits. The race was a sell-out, with the flat terrain and magnificent views attracting the participants and spectators.3,500 people braved the heat to compete along Clontarf’s iconic promenade.

This year we had a great turnout across the Joe Duffy Group. One of the main attractions for this race is that it is accessible for all fitness levels. If you don’t feel up to running you can walk. You also have some great athletes partaking, particularly from the Joe Duffy Group, with many of our staff producing fantastic times and personal bests.

We had a number of ultimate driving machines at the event. The main source of interest being the BMW i3.
