Cork City Marathon 2019 - Volunteer Stewards Required

Call for Volunteers - Cork City Marathon 2019

Sunday June 2nd 2019


34207438 race marshal

Apart from all the fine details that go into organising any event, no race can go ahead without two essential elements:

Runners and Stewards


Record numbers have entered for Sunday week's Marathon, Relay and Half-Marathon, however there is still a shortfall in volunteer stewards.


Cork Athletics manages and stewards some 60% of the course, from Mahon/Blackrock to the Finish, including the Victoria Road and Model Farm Road relay changeover stations, and all water-stations and road junctions between Blackrock and the Finish Line. 


There has, as always, been a tremendous response from Athletes and their Clubs, nevertheless there is still a shortfall in requirements.  If you can spare a few hours on Monday, please contact Pat Walsh, Cork Athletics - contact details below.


Paddy Buckley, Chairman, Cork Athletics County Board:

"We are very grateful to the very loyal stewards who have helped out at every one of the past ten marathons.

Paddy himself will, as always, be actively managing and stewarding the relaychangeover station at Kenley/Melbourne, on the Model Farm Road.

We need a few more volunteer stewards this Monday, June 1st, to get us over the line"


Please ring or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., 0872354836 , if you can help out."

Alternatively, contact Paddy Buckley on 0851480725


If, you haven't yet volunteered, but find, on Sunday, that you can spare time help, either go to the City Hall, early in the morning, or just go to one of the relay changeover stations and make yourself known to the stewards and officials there.  Alternatively, make contact with any steward on the course.

Stewarding can be a very rewarding experience, and is a great way to see the event, while, at the same time, giving something back to the sport and the community.
