Dublin Is Ready For Some "SeriousFun"

"As SeriousFun founder Paul Newman famously declared, 'It's all about the kids' and we couldn't be more excited to partner with an organization that has had such a tremendous impact on the lives of children and families facing serious illness," said Tom Godfrey, General Manager of CGE.

Race weekend in Dublin will begin with a two-day Health & Fitness Expo at the Burlington Hotel where all participants will pick up their race number and Brooks technical t-shirt. The free expo will be open to the public and will feature several running and fitness retailers, exhibits with nutritional samples and a series of interactive clinics.

The race is expected to bring runners from around the world, while also attracting both new and experienced local runners. For those new to running, Team SeriousFun is the perfect way to approach training and preparing for the half marathon distance. Through Team SeriousFun, participants will run or walk the Rock 'n' Roll Dublin Half Marathon while making a difference in the life of a child facing serious illness. What better way to be a part of something serious than by joining something fun?!

Through Team SeriousFun, participants will run or walk in exciting endurance events to support SeriousFun Children's Network of global camps.  Participants will benefit from a professional coaching program that will provide a personal training schedule as well as access to virtual coaching staff.  Fundraising professionals will support and guide each participant to meet and exceed their fundraising goals.

Team SeriousFun welcomes participants to discover their strength, resilience and joy; and Competitor Group is proud to welcome their team to the first ever Rock 'n' Roll Dublin Half Marathon.  To join Team SeriousFun or learn more about how you can be part of something serious, something fun, visit

About The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series Organized by Competitor Group, the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series is the 'World's Largest Running Series' with more than 500,000 runners taking part in thirty-two destination events around the world. What started as a simple idea in 1998—the idea of making running fun-- soon transformed the U.S. running landscape by infusing the race course with live bands, cheer teams and entertaining water stations. The outdoor festivals encapsulate cities in their entirety and culminate with a finish line festival featuring a concert headlined by some of the best music acts around. Over the 16-year history of the series, charity partners have raised more than $283 million through the events for a variety of worthy causes. Today, the series of entertainment themed marathons and half-marathons has spread to 32 cities around the world and continues to enjoy great appeal for the traveling runner, tremendous local support and has firmly established itself as a dynamic running platform.
