The 1984 Olympic men’s marathon is etched in my mind. The sight of John Treacy, in his first ever marathon, running into the stadium ahead of Charlie Spedding to win a silver medal is surely one of the greatest Irish sporting moments of all time.

Over the recent June bank holiday weekend, over 20,000 women took part in the Dublin women’s mini-marathon. The event was first held in 1983.
