The All Hallows Area Association and Marino Athletics Club are reflecting on the first Griffith Avenue Mile race since 2019. Together we saw a record 1,500 runners of all abilities run the mile along Dublin’s Griffith Avenue and many in record time.
The weather cooperated fully, and it was a wonderful spectacle to see so many elite runners and members of the local community enjoy the run in beautiful autumn sunshine on this unique avenue on Dublin's north side.
The mens race was won by Hiko Tonosa Haso in a time of 4:08, and the women's race was won and a new course record set by Michelle Finn in a time of 4:35. Full results are available to view here. Congratulations to you all!
Our post race event was held in DCU All Hallows with the support of Dublin City University, and attended by Lord Mayor Caroline Conroy, DCU Daire Keogh and other dignitaries.
Race MC Liam Moggan said “‘All we have are the days’, McGahern wrote. And today was an extraordinarily memorable one. Congratulations and Bualadh bos le gach duine.”
We are all so thankful to the many organisations and individuals who helped make the event such a success - our sponsors, partners, vendors but most importantly the participants - our elite runners and the community of Drumcondra, Marino, Whitehall and beyond for coming out to enjoy a very special day. Thank you.
We’re already making plans for 2023. Watch this space!
