We encourage all racers and race attendees to make their way to race by foot, walk or public transport. However we do recognise that some attendees may be coming from further distances and may need parking to be made available to them.
The Q Park will be offering discounts to all Cork City Marathon runners in our 2023 races. Use code “CCM2023” for a 25% discount on all parking from the 3rd – 5th of June. This discount is only applicable to pre-bookings that have been made online, prior to the race. With pre-bookings, the registration of your car will automatically be saved so the barriers will rise once you enter the car park.
The below Q Park car parks are 24 hrs so all users will have 24 hr access to their vehicles.
