Don't forget you can come to the Maple for the after race party on Monday evening (see below) and help celebrate with Ger and the rest of our gallant crew.
You can also still donate sponsorship for Ger's cause the East Cork Rapid Response Unit on Monday night.
If you cannot make it drop in your sponsorship please.


There will be an informal social gathering in the Maple on Monday night at 8.00 pm.  Come along for a post race chat.  Finger food will be served. All welcome


Best of luck to everyone running this weekend in the Marathon, Half Marathon and Relays and in any other races too. Remember if you are not running or stewarding please come and give support to all the runners.

Cork City Marathon Help Needed

Cork Athletics is looking for volunteers to spend a few hours stewarding the Cork City Marathon on Monday next, June 6th. 
Monday's Cork City Marathon requires a considerable amount of volunteers to manage the event. A number of other organisations, along with several community groups, and Cork Athletics, cover the route. The Gardai, assisted by volunteers, cover the major junctions. Without all this volunteer support, and the Gardai, it would be impossible to hold the Marathon.

Cork Athletics covers a considerable number of Relay Changeover points, Intersections along with other locations.  Currently Cork Athletics is short of manpower to cover quite a few locations , and is appealing for volunteers to contact Pat on 087-2354836.
