Participants are assigned to an appropriate corral based on the projected finishing time submitted on their entry form. Typically, there are multiple waves assigned to several of the finishing times. All spectators should be aware of this when organizing their viewing schedule for the day.
When the gun fires, the first corral will be released. The rest of the participants will be held at the start line.
At pre-determined intervals the next corral will be released.
By using this staggered starting method, the pack will be spread out and allow every runner to settle into their racing rhythm from the first step right to the finish line.

What are the time limits?
To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, the course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED. Participants must maintain a pace faster than the course time limits in order to complete the race on closed city streets. Please note – this is timing tag time, not gun time. Course time limits begin when the last participant and Tail Vehicle cross the start line.
Marathon: 6 hours
Half Marathon: 3.5 hours
5K: 1 hour

If a participant’s pace falls below the course time limit, they have a few options:

How is the race timed?
Race timing is by MYLAPS using chip on the bib technology which will automatically record participants’ times at the start, at certain splits along the courses and at the finish. Sportstats will be using disposable tags, glued onto your race bib, which allows you to walk away from the finish without the need to have your tag collected.Please Note: All participants in the race must wear their race bib with the tag intact in order to have their times recorded. No bib = no time! Please make sure the race bib is pinned at torso height at the front and is visible throughout the race.

Tips to guarantee your correct Bib Tag timing:
- Place the race number on the center of the chest so everyone can see your number. Don’t cover this number with a jacket or with your hands/arms when you run over the timing mats. Please pay attention when you use a (stop)watch on the start and finish mats.
- Never fold or damage this number. Especially on the location of the BibTag.
- Use four (4) safety pins on the corners of the number. Do not damage or perforate the BibTag.
- Do not remove the foam pad on the BibTag.
- If you own a personal MYLAPS ChampionChip, you can leave it on your shoe. It will not influence your BibTag timing.

How can I volunteer?
Help support your community, as well as thousands of runners by volunteering for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon. With 100s of positions available there is a spot for everyone, including teams, corporate groups, or just friends and family.

Where do I get my race photos?
All finishers will be able to view and purchase their photos from the event on the finisherpix.com.

What if my results are missing or inaccurate?
Please submit a results correction request and our timing company will look into your claim. Corrections will be updated on a weekly basis.

What if my Garmin is slightly more than the official race distance?
On race day, if the distance shown on your Forerunner is slightly more than the official race distance, it just means you weren’t cutting corners—quite literally. According to the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) course measurement guidelines (pg. 20), a road race course is defined by the shortest possible route a runner could take without being disqualified. For most races, a certified measurer rides the course on a bike, staying near the curb and taking every available tangent. This ensures that all runners will run at least the declared race distance. After the race, if Forerunner shows that you ran a little farther, this just  accounts for extra steps you took to run around others participants, hit a water stop or stay to the middle or outside lane.

Are spectators allowed to attend the Marathon and Half Marathon headliner concert?
Participants of all race distances (Half marathon, 10K and 1-mile), along with friends and family members, will be permitted to enter, free of charge. Stay tuned to the Entertainment page for all 2020 details

What if I lost a personal item at the Health & Fitness Expo or at the Start or Finish Line?
Lost items that were found and turned in will be returned to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series office after the event. Please allow 3-4 weeks for transit time and inventory. If you would like to follow up on a lost item, please contact us at [email protected]. Please Note: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

What if my Garmin is slightly more than the official race distance?
On race day, if the distance shown on your Forerunner is slightly more than the official race distance, it just means you weren’t cutting corners—quite literally. According to the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federation) course measurement guidelines (pg. 20), a road race course is defined by the shortest possible route a runner could take without being disqualified. For most races, a certified measurer rides the course on a bike, staying near the curb and taking every available tangent. This ensures that all runners will run at least the declared race distance. After the race, if Forerunner shows that you ran a little farther, this just  accounts for extra steps you took to run around others participants, hit a water stop or stay to the middle or outside lane.

Are spectators allowed to attend the Marathon and Half Marathon headliner concert?
