Join Team Biobank this October and run the Dublin Marathon for Cancer Research.

Take on the Dublin Marathon in support of Biobank Ireland and join the race against cancer. We are looking for keen individuals, be it a beginner runner or an athlete to come together and train under the guidance of Will Mullin and form a team to take on the Dublin Marathon in aid of Biobank Ireland next October.

Will Mullin has ran over 40 marathons, among them 15 at the Dublin Marathon. He has just returned from the Sahara where he completed the Marathon des Sables, 6 marathons in 6 days dubbed the toughest footrace on Earth. With a Personal Best in the Marathon of 2.52 in Dublin, he is looking for ten to twenty runners to join him on team Biobank to raise much needed funds for cancer research in 2016.

If you’ve never run a marathon before, you are perfect! Will is looking for people who have dreamed of completing the distance and he will help you get there. He will create a bespoke training plan for you and will meet monthly to run with you, motivate you and amend your training plan as you progress and get closer to Marathon Monday.

What you need to do: We are asking you to raise a minimum of 1,500 with our help for Biobank cancer research. 

How to join: You can register your interest by contacting Elaine Kelly on or +353851070118.
