Youth Challenge FREE FUN 5k Run/Walk

 

While the Cork Marathon Youth Challenge is restricted to over 16s, for younger runners we’ve teamed up with the Cork City Marathon Office, Cork City Council,  ETB,  HSE and LeisureWorld to organise a 5k fun run/walk that they can take part in. The Fun 5k is open to secondary school students and youth club members over the age of 13. It’s a free event but you must register for it in advance.  All youths must be registered by their teacher or youth worker.

Last year over 100 students from schools and youth services across Cork City and County took part in the inaugural event in Tramore Valley Park. Participants of all fitness levels took part and thoroughly enjoyed the event. 

This event is being organised to support schools/youth organisations and their teams in preparation for the Youth Challenge Relay on June 4th. This is a FUN event open to all fitness levels!
