Sanctuary runners: Join us call

CORK’S Sanctuary Runners have issued a call for people to run alongside asylum seekers in this year’s Cork City Marathon. The group is aiming to have 300 runners in this year’s race, including 75 people from Cork’s direct provision centres.

Established by journalist Graham Clifford and photographer Clare Keogh last year with the support of Cork City Council and the Tomar Trust, the team now has participants of 40 different nationalities competing in weekly runs.

Social Inclusion Specialist at Cork City Council, Tony Power said " The ripple effects of running in solidarity, forging friendships and breaking down the faceless barrier of exclusion can be seen in the nationwide spread of Sanctuary Runners, attracting international media attention and offering the opportunity for those in Direct Provision to meet and mix with their neighbours."
