Cork Walking Week will take place from 19th May - 27th May 2018. The week-long celebration of walking will take place throughout Cork and cater for people interested in getting out and about and experiencing a multitude of walking opportunites. 

Cork Sports Partnership along with the Health Promotion and Improvement Division of the HSE South has a vested interested in supporting walking groups, programmes and initiatives in Cork and Cork Walking Week will provide a fantastic focal point for people to experience walking events and activities locally. The Cork Sports Partnership has organised the schedule of walking events with local community walking groups,hill walking groups and local partners who are encouraging people to take part in their walks during the week. The events are open to beginners who would like to get started with walking in a fun, safe and local environment.

Aside from a number of local guided walks taking place throughout the week there are other walking workshops, events and trainings to avail of:

  • Level 1 Irish Heart Foundation Walk Leader Training
  • Mountain Skills 1 Course for Hill Walking Clubs
  • Get Into Walking Workshops
  • Sports First Aid for Walking Groups
  • Cork Walking Week 2018 Feature Event- Cork Rebel Ramble 5k, 10k, 20k Walk- Sunday May 27th- Kilavullen. 

Speaking about the Cork Walking Week recently, Claire Hurley of the Cork Sports Partnership said, “We are delighted to be able to offer such an exciting calendar of events during Cork Walking Week 2018, following our successful Walking campaigns of 2015 & 2017 there was a great appetite from people to take part in local events, with their local walking group”.   “These organised events offer people a unique opportunity to get out walking, but they also give people the chance to meet different groups in an informal setting and perhaps join the group following the walking events”.

The Cork Sports Partnership would like to thank the host of walking groups that have scheduled walking events during the week for people to get involved in. These groups stretch across Cork City and County and we hope to get ‘Cork Walking’ between Saturday May 19th  and Sunday May 27th. A list of the groups involved and their details are available on the website.
