The Echo Women's Mini Marathon is the biggest event of its kind in Munster. It has grown from its beginnings in 1980, with only 300 participants, to over 10,000 participants in recent years.
The race is an Athletics Ireland registered event, and is run over closed roads, alongside Cork's River Lee and through the leafy suburbs of Blackrock and Ballintemple
Whether you are a seasoned runner, on a fitness mission, or are joining friends to enjoy the walk, the Mini Marathon is suitable for everyone, with women choosing to run, jog or walk depending on their fitness level.
This event has been going for almost four decades and, each year, approx. 1 Million euro is raised for local, national and international charities and organisations, with the participants themselves deciding which charity they will support. The Echo Women's Mini Marathon has become a key event on every charity’s fundraising calendar. So, why not come and join us on September 22nd, we can promise you a fun day out!
