The race was due to be held on October 25th but it's been called off "in the best interest of the health and wellbeing of all those involved".

Organisers say they looked at a number of alternatives to run the event safely but none was viable.

A record 25-thousand people were due to take part.

Arklow's  Mary Nolan Hickey has completed every Dublin Marathon and believes it's the right decision.

She says it's a wonderful event and a lot has changed over the years.
