If you are running the SSE Airtricity Dublin City marathon on Monday, this is a must watch.

Narrated by Course Director Mick McCartan, this brilliant video will show all the runners what to expect on Monday.

Covering every step of the 26.2 mile course in just under eight minutes, it takes the viewer from the city centre, out through the Phoenix Park, around to Walkinstown and back to the city centre via UCD.

Not only does the video give you a sense of the many ups and downs of the marathon course it also gives those of us who aren't runners a real sense of just how much ground the Dublin city marathon covers.

McCartan gives lots of great advice about local landmarks, drinks stations and cheering zones around the course too so if you are one of the record 15,250 people signed up for the race on Monday, we hope you enjoy the run as much as we enjoyed watching the video.
