Team members can walk, run or combine the two, with each person completing at least one stage of the marathon relay course. The stages range in length from 4.5 to 5.8 miles. A key aspect of this event is that it is not a race, as such, but more of a challenge to get young people to be able to complete a distance of approximately 6 miles and, as a team, to finish the marathon distance.


The Cork Youth Challenge is part of the popular Cork City Marathon team relay and is intended for transition year students, in particular, but is open and suitable for all 2nd-level students and members of youth clubs who will be aged 16 years at the time of the event.
