Here's everything you need to know about race day ...

98FM will be bringing the Good Times to the Mini Marathon with none other than Dame Stuffy herself.

Dame Stuffy, panto queen and star of Last Singer Standing will be at the start line with a fun warm up to get you all going - not to mention playing the tunes and bringing the craic to start your run off right!

98FM weekday presenter, Leanne Hanafin will join you later on in the course where she'll play some Dublin’s Good Time anthems to keep you going!

Not to mention our 98FM Thunders and Thunderbus will be there all day to hype you all up and join in on the fun – they may even have a goody or two for you.
