This month sees two major events in the Cork Athletics calendar.  These are key fundraising events both for Cork Athletics, and also for it's member clubs.  

The Evening Echo Womens Mini-Marathon is organised and hosted by Cork Athletics, and sponsored by Cork's Evening Echo, for the 35th year. The proceeds help Cork Athletics fund its competitions and Championships. In addition it enables the Board to organise training, in coaching, coach education, child protection and safety, along with grants for athletics related equipment.  The Board also organises transport and accomodation for representative Cork teams.

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.

Cork Athletics is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation. The Officers, Committee members and others who help to run the business of the Board are all volunteers, who give their time and expertise, free of charge, for the benefit of the athletes and the sport.

Cork Athletics is a designated Sports Body, Registered GS Number 3014 - Cork County Board (Athletics Association of Ireland) - under Section 235 Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997
