Out with the old, in with the new! We are delighted to announce that, due to popular demand, we have a new race for the Cork City Marathon day – the 10K Race! You must be at least 15 years old on race day to enter the 10k.
The 10K race will replace the previous relay race option, with challenges around operations and logistics it’s unfortunately no longer possible to offer the relay race. We thought really hard about this and didn’t want to drop it but unfortunately, we didn’t have another choice.
However, we are very excited to offer Cork City Marathon’s first 10k race, taking place on Sunday 4th June. This 10-kilometre run will partly align with the marathon route. The route map will be shared closer to the date.
The addition of the 10k race was a widely popular decision as it opens up participation in the Cork City Marathon to those who would like a less challenging and more fun and inclusive challenge, be it on your own or with a group! It will be a great opportunity for everybody who participates in the very popular 5k park runs to join the Cork City Marathon 10k challenge.
With a minimum age of 15, the 10k makes Cork City Marathon really inclusive!
You can enter online here. (Link opens EventMaster.ie for registration)
If you are at least 15 years old and have recently started running, or doing any fun runs or 5k runs on weekends, recommenced training, or are in recovery from an injury and are worried that the Half Marathon or Full Marathon might be too much or too strenuous for you, the 10K could be the perfect option for you! You will get a medal crossing the finish line and there will be cash prizes up for grabs, similar to the other races of the day!
Participants will have the opportunity to enter individually or as part of a team in which they could run together and encourage each other. They would all get their individual results which will be posted on the race page and if registered as a team, their team results would also be published!
If you would like to enter as a team, you will first of all have to agree to a team name. Then the first person has to enter their team name into the field ‘team name’ in the registration, once the team name is entered it will come up in a drop-down for their teammates to join them. Or if you’d prefer to run solo, you and your relay runner team mates can register without selecting the team option.
People will get their individual prizes for the first 3 winners of male and female and then if entered as a team the fastest team would win another prize which they can then win for their club or a chosen charity which is a great method of supporting inclusivity and sponsorship! It would also be a great challenge and give everybody a chance, as it doesn’t mean the team with the fastest runner will win the team prize. Another team might come in after the first 3 but their times added up might be better than the team with the fastest runner.
If you’re already following a training programme that works for you, stick with it. If you’re not, you might want to check back here for our 12-week programmes which you can tailor to suit your experience and time frame.
We are just updating our training programmes and will publish them here soon.
