This weekend sees one of the major events in the Cork Athletics calendar, the Echo Women's Mini-Marathon  This event is the key fundraising event for Cork Athletics, and also for it's member clubs.  Cork County Board is asking all clubs to provide help in the form of stewards, officials, and other help

This is a Major fundraiser for Cork Athletics, without which the Board could not provide such as T&F, Road and XC Championships, Coaching Courses, Equipment & Safety Grants, organise Cork teams of all categories, and a myriad of other events & activities. It is also the source of funding for Cork Athletics facilities, particularly it's grounds at Riverstick, and, going forward, will, it is hoped, fund other future facilities

In addition the participants raise an estimated €1.3M for their own chosen charities


This event is our Life-Blood - Please Help!

The Echo Womens Mini-Marathon is organised and hosted by Cork Athletics, and sponsored by Cork's Evening Echo, for the 36th 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.

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.
