Fan Zones

This year, to help encourage our runners, we are calling for schools/community groups/clubs to set up Fan Zones along the course of the race. Cork City Marathon is known for its amazing atmosphere, and this year we’re calling on local groups to help keep the spirits of their friends high! Fan Zones can be set up in any three of our races; the full marathon, half marathon and the 10k race.

Fan zones will be responsible for creating enthusiastic and fun energy for the runners to help drive the runners along their journey. There’s multiple activities that Fan Zones can take part in to empower the racers, such as setting up speakers, chanting, waving signs, or wearing crazy outfits! The Fan Zones are a great way to support the community in Cork City, as many locals participate in our races. So it’s a great chance for you to help cheer on your friends, family and community residents!

We are also rewarding a cash prize of €300 to the best Fan Zone, which will be voted for by the runners on the day of the race!
The Fan Zones are a great opportunity to get involved in the local community and to show
support for local events. If setting up a Fan Zone is something your school/community
group/club would be interested in, you can register below!
