Enterprise Rent-A-Car Ireland has been named as the Official Car Partner of the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon for the fourth consecutive year.

Now in its 37th year, the SSE Airtricity Dublin City Marathon is considered to be one of the leading marathons in Europe and showcases Dublin at its very best to an international audience.

20,000 runners will take to the streets on Sunday, marshaled by over 1,000 volunteers and backed by the good wishes and charitable sponsorship of tens of thousands more.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car will assist organisers of the event by providing a total of 36 vehicles for use during the event. These include 12 lead pace cars as pictured above to guide the runners around the 42-kilometre course, as well as five safety vehicles to ferry any casualties to the medical team facility, five stationary timing vehicles, and 14 logistics vans.

Aside from the provision of vehicles, the Enterprise team is participating in a voluntary capacity with staff member, David Hudson, entering his 20th year as a member of the Dublin Marathon Committee and set to join the 1,135 stewards that will oversee the day.
