The date of the 2017 Cork City Marathon was launched today, Wednesday December 14th, and, after months of wrangling with planning and logistics, the 2017 event is set for Sunday June 4th, breaking with the long-standing association with Bank Holiday Monday.

The formal launch is set for next week, the photo-shoot having taken place on Wed, Dec 14th.

Holding the event on a Sunday brings many new challenges to the organisers, but it is hoped that the change will bring new growth to the popular series, which includes the Cork City Marathon, and Cork City Marathon Relay, along with the growing popularity of the Cork City Half-Marathon.

The Marathon Route is likely to be largely the same, at least for the first half anyway.  Plans to eliminate the Jack Lynch Tunnel have been shelved, however changes in the second half of the course are still being explored.  One of the key points is to try to "flatten" the course.  It is also envisaged that the Half-Marathon start will change, particularly in light of the calamitous start to the 2016 'Half'
