Thanks, 5 1/2 stone to date. kind of happy where I am now, maybe a half more to go, but not really 'trying', if it happens it happens.

I just searched till I found one bought by someone else per instructions below.
  • Go to the results section of the DCM Website and search for your results. http://dublinmarathon.ie/results.php
  • Note your FINISH TIME (not chip time)
  • Then do a search again for ALL runners i.e. don't enter any bib number
  • Sort the results by FINISH TIME and go to the page where your result is.
  • Now start clicking the names of other finishers above and below you to find someone who has paid for their video and then you can watch/download the finish video.
  • When you find a video, you have to select one of the finish cameras. The best camera is "Finish - Merrion Square North"

The problem is that the full list of finishers is a mix of all 3 waves so a runner might have the same finish time as you but actually finished 10 mins before or after you because they started in a wave before or after your wave.
When you play one of the videos the trick is to look at the correct clock for your wave to determine if you finished around the same time as other finisher in the video.

I was lucky to find one video but I had to click quite a few to find it.

Thanks a mill for this tip - managed to see myself crossing the line I completely forgot the advice here about finishing and just have my head down to switch off Garmin so don't think be buying but nice to see

From the vid of you finishing you def gave it your all to get over the line - fair play!

Yep, according the the marathon thread they were:

Clareman07
Belcarra
Hot to trot

But the pacers on here can confirm if they ended up doing it on the day...

Oh thank god.....
Right, better pick that paper up tonight then so my moment of fame can be saved along with name in paper from Tuesdays finishers list - would framing them on my living room wall be to much perhaps..............

A big thank you from me to each, really great job done by all and I think there was one more? Great encouragement and advice on the course, left them at Belfield flyover and never got to officially say thanks at the finish.

Likewise - I'd my username on my number but nobody would have had a chance to see it really, except by accident before the start (which limited it to the queue for the loo!). Killian & NCMC are the only two I'd have had a chance of recognising unaided but there are probably loads of others whose company I'd have appreciated. Thankfully the crowd kept me company the whole way.

Think Digijem was there too - we spoke briefly at the Expo.

She was, her debut into pacing saw her reach the line in 4:59:59, perfect.

Was gonna go for a gentle run tonight but settled for a glass of wine instead.

The lack of guilt is fantastic.
