Approx. 120 stewards are required to steward this event.
In general, individual clubs will be assigned specific areas, including parking, Goodie Bag pickup and Route stewarding. Clubs will receive funding based on the number of stewards provided.
This event starts at 2am on Saturday October 1st, however stewards will be required from approx. 11pm (TBC). The duration for which stewards will be required will depend upon the areas assigned
Due to the funding received by clubs assisting in this event, there is a high demand for stewarding places. Priority will be given to clubs who have assisted in stewarding the Evening Echo Womens Mini-Marathon
The Vhi A Lust For Life Cork Airport 5k is organised and hosted by Cork Athletics, with the assistance of Cork athletics clubs, on behalf of Athletics Ireland and the Irish Independent. A portion of the entry fee is donated to the Cork City Hospitals Children's Club. Cork Athletics receives a fee for organising and hosting the event, and the clubs providing stewards for the event also receive funding. The funds received, both by Cork Athletics and it's member clubs, are ploughed back into athletics in Cork.
