Half Marathon

The Route of the Half Marathon Course

The Half Marathon will start on Monahan Road at 10.15am.

You can enter online here. (Link opens EventMaster.ie for registration)

It is overall, a fast and flat course over 21.1km/13.1 miles.

As with all major city marathons, the challenge for the marathon course committee was to design a route that would maximise the runners’ experience while minimising the disruption to the public. We also wanted to make this truly a city marathon, by bringing the race to as much of the city as is possible.

Cork City Half-Marathon 2024. This is an Athletics Ireland registered event. The course has been measured by John Quigley, AIMS/World Athletics Grade A Measurer. This event is organised and hosted by Davis Events on behalf of Cork City Council, in association with Cork BHAA and Cork Athletics.

Keane’s Jewellers Perpetual Cork City Half Marathon Trophies

‌Kindly donated by Keane’s Jewellers, the first across the line in the men’s and women’s half marathon will receive a beautifully crafted silver trophy. The trophies will be engraved with the winners’ names. Unfortunately, the trophies are perpetual, so the winners have to part with their silverware at the end of their reigning year!
