New date announced for Cork City Marathon

New date announced for Cork City Marathon

Earlier this week it was announced that the annual event, which was due to take place on the June Bank Holiday weekend, had been postponed.

The Cork City Marathon organisers have confirmed the new date for the 2020 Cork City Marathon. It will now take place on Sunday, September 6, 2020. 

Earlier this week it was announced that the annual event, which was due to take place on the June Bank Holiday weekend, had been postponed as a result of the uncertainty amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement issued today, Adrienne Rodgers, Race Director and Director of Services at Cork City Council, said he is looking forward to the event which will now take place in September.

“Cork City Marathon has been rescheduled until 6th September 2020 and we look forward to welcoming you then for another great Cork City Marathon.” 

Mags Connelly, Safety and Ops Director at Davis Events, said: “The last few weeks have been challenging for everyone. We take participant safety extremely seriously and know that with the current strain on emergency resources, we wouldn’t be able to provide the world-class response teams needed for our marathon in May. 

"The good news for Cork City is that this event will go ahead on 6th September.” 

Participants who have already entered will be automatically deferred to the rescheduled date.
