DUBLIN, Ireland – 14 July 2015 – In light of news surrounding the recent Belfast Titanic Half Marathon experience, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is offering 50% off entries to disappointed Titanic entrants to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon on Sunday 2nd August 2015.

Race director Rob Griffiths said, “As runners ourselves we understand the level of investment that runners make to prepare for a race and can imagine the disappointment when race day is not the experience that was anticipated. When news of the Belfast race came out over the weekend, we wanted to do something to support our fellow runners. We hope that Titanic participants will continue their race journey and join us in Dublin on 2nd August 2015 to put their hard training to work”.

We operate more than 30 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events around the world, and as such runners have come to know and love our well-organised races that feature all the bells and whistles such as massive finisher’s medals, technical t-shirt, well-stocked aid stations, bands along the course and a finish festival concert, among other things” said Mr Griffiths Race director.

Titanic runners must email proof of registration to rnrdublin@competitorgroup.combefore 24 July with subject line of “Titanic Transfer” to receive an individual discount code to register for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon (£17.40/€24.50 with the special 50% off discount; current full price is £34.80/€49).

Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon hosts the AAI National Half Marathon Championships. The route starts at Dublin’s Docklands area, running along the north side of the Liffey River and offers a scenic tour of Dublin’s city centre, passing many famous landmarks including Ha’Penny bridge, Christ Church Cathedral, Brazen Head Pub (Ireland’s oldest pub), James Joyce Museum, and the Guinness Brewery. The event concludes in Phoenix Park with a finish line festival and upbeat headliner concert. Participants who run both the half-marathon in the morning and the 3K in the afternoon will receive double the “bling,” meaning a finisher medal for each race. The shorter 3K distance is also a great way to get the entire family running.
