Join Mater Foundation at Ireland’s largest marathon this October and show your support for our amazing hospital.

Over 20,000 people take part in the marathon each year. The single-lap course is reasonably flat and winds through Dublin city and surrounding suburbs, passing through the Phoenix Park and finishing in the city centre at Merrion Square.

We are asking you to take on the marathon as part of our Mater team this October 30th. Once you have registered, we’ll send you out a fundraising pack and a Mater Hospital Foundation running shirt that you can wear on the day.

To help you reach your fundraising goals, set up an online donation page on JustGiving where your friends, family and colleagues can support you.

This is the first year the Irish Life Dublin Marathon will be back in person so places will be in high demand. The official lottery has closed and tickets have already been allocated, so registering with Mater Hospital Foundation is now the only way to enter. Make sure to register, and pay your deposit with us early to secure your spot! And take on this amazing fundraising challenge.

To register or find out more, contact Angi, our Community & Events Specialist, at or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
