Dublin Marathon
National Marathon Championships

This applies to Athletics Ireland members only and as members of Midleton AC you qualify.

It does NOT apply to NON AAI members.
Just one of the many good reasons to join an Athletics Ireland club.

National Marathon Championship
Dublin Marathon 'good for age' standard for AAI members will open for entry on the 1st of April to 26th April.
Entry is through the Dublin Marathon site and verification of times will be required. The standard must met within the last 3 years.
To ensure entry will also be included in the AAI National marathon members should enter the marathon with the same name and details as per their AAI membership

There is no official club training as per Athletic's Ireland guidelines.

This weeks session is the same as last weeks. It is about building a strong base. Any queries please feel free to ring/text Donie or myself 0872403940 Danny 


Stay Safe Run Safe

Please all follow the HSE guidelines. I have had a couple of calls saying that runners in Midleton have been seen not observing the safe distance guidelines. I do not believe they were members of the club but please be careful out there and observe the guidelines. This is your chance to lead by example. Safe running everyone. Danny

Ballintotis 4 Mile Race Cancelled

Due to the ongoing uncertainty with the Covid 19 Virus and keeping in mind the health and safety of everybody, this year's Ballintotis 4 Mile Road Race scheduled for Thursday April 16th has been CANCELLED

Those who have availed of pre entry on line, will soon be contacted by Primo Events to arrange a refund.
We thank all our participants for their wonderful support over the past ten years and look forward to hopefully seeing you all back in Ballintotis in April 2021.

In the meantime, take care and look out for one another during these troubled times - here's hoping we are all back running in the not too distant future.

Best Regards
Ballintotis Race Committee 

Midleton Athletic Club regret to announce that the 2020 Midleton AC 5 Mile road race scheduled for Thursday 7th May has been cancelled.

We have been monitoring recent events and in the interest of safeguarding the health of event participants, spectators, volunteers and our own club members we have decided on this course of action.

We will refund any of the online entries that we have processed, please bear with us until we arrange this and all will be contacted by email in due course.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and volunteers who have helped us along the way this year, and in previous years. Without your assistance this race would not be possible.

We would encourage all to stay safe and to follow the HSE Guidelines to help stop the spread of this virus.

Stay safe everyone.

Hi All,

Due to uncertain circumstances with the Covid-19 Outbreak, I have temporally suspended all online entries to our race until the 1st of April.
If we have to cancel in the future I don't want to have to refund too many people.
Judging by the situation we are faced with, it might not be possible to hold the race this May and we might need to look at dates in the summer as possible alternatives.

I spoke to Club Captain Declan Dorgan this morning about this situation and he is of the agreement that we might need to cancel the scheduled race day of 7th of May and look for another summer date.

We will make a call on this by the end of next week.

Obviously the health and welfare of all our members and families is more important during this time, we need to assist the country in every way to stop the spread of this virus.

Best regards,

Marc Dalton Race Director


See previous regarding official club training.

Lots of us are meeting up in small groups so keep in touch with each other and stay safe. Danny
