The sun has come along just in time to dust off the running shoes and start preparing for one of the biggest participation events in Cork city, the annual Cork Women’s mini marathon. This is the 37th year of the race, which will take place on Sunday, September 16.
Hailed as Munster’s premier four-mile road race, it has grown to attract approximately 8,000 participants in recent years, many of whom fundraise for their chosen charity.
The event is hosted by the Athletic Association of Ireland (Cork). The Evening Echo has been title sponsor since the inception of the race and is very proud of this fantastic event. All proceeds go to the Athletic Association of Ireland (Cork) to assist with the development of athletics in the Cork region.
The race will start at the city end of Centre Park Road at 1pm and take in The Marina, Blackrock Village, Ballintemple, Maryville, Monahan Road before finishing in Kennedy Park.
All registered participants will receive a specially designed event medal on completion of the Mini Marathon and the event is chip timed. There is a new U16 entry fee for 2018.
