Sonia O’Sullivan 3K Challenge

At the 1987 Cork City Sports, a young Sonia O’ Sullivan set a National Junior Record of 9:01, in the 3000m. This performance put Sonia on the map, and launched the career of the greatest athlete Ireland has ever produced.

Thirty years on, this Junior Record still stands. For the 2017 Cork City Sports, Sonia is laying down a challenge to all clubs to enter a team of junior girls to run a 3k relay, in an attempt to break her thirty-year-old 9:01 record.

The team must consist of five junior female athletes, from the same club, who will each run 600m. Cork City Sports is delighted to include this 3K challenge in the 2017 programme.
