Fit4Life Groups in Cork

Supported by the HSE

The Cork Mini Marathon was the catalyst for the “meet and train” initiative. Each year hundreds of women take part in the mini marathon, mostly to raise funds for deserving charities but also to be a part of what is a fantastic fun and social event. The Health Promotion Department of the Health Service Executive Southern Area and Cork Local Sports Partnership recognised the potential to build on this success and decided to set up “meet and train” groups. These groups will facilitate women coming together to increase their fitness levels and have fun in preparation for the event.

Since 2006 these groups have grown immensley and with the support of Athletics Ireland and local Athletics clubs the Fit4Life Initative was rolled out across Cork.  Men and women of all ages and abilites can now join their local Fit4Life group and take up running or jogging, or perhaps even train for some local events and runs.


The Cork Sports Partnership is committed to supporting the Meet & Train and Fit4Life initiatives and has set up a number of groups over the last few years. If you would like to know more  or to find out where your nearest group is, please do not hesitate to contact us 021 2061762  or have a look at the current list of active groups in Cork. Alternatively if you are a club and are interested in setting up a ‘meet & train/Fit4life’ group within your club we would be delighted to hear from you also.
