2012 Dublin City Marathon Weather Forecast

With just three days to go until the 33rd annual Dublin City Marathon, it is looking like Bank Holiday Monday will see mainly dry and bright weather persist across Ireland.  However, it will feel cold due to persistent, moderate northerly breezes.

What can the estimated 14,350 registered participants expect weatherwise as they make their way through the streets of Dublin on Monday (29 October, 2012)?


It will feel raw and cold to start with overcast conditions persisting for a time during the early morning. There is a risk of a few passing light showers. 

However, brighter weather with sunny breaks will develop as the morning progresses. Winds light northeasterly slowly shifting to a more northerly direction and becoming moderate (25-40 kph) by the early afternoon. Early morning lows of 3-5c and daytime highs of 7-9c (will feel colder due to the breeze). All in all, one of the better weather outlooks for the Marathon which has seen its fair share of washouts down through the years.

Best of luck to everybody taking part in the 2012 Dublin City Marathon!
