Rebel Run & Rebel Run a Mile Challenge Launch

Thursday 16 August 2018

The Annual Cork Rebel Run 5k & 10k was launched in Cork Institute of Technology recently. Now in its 7th year the event will take place on Sunday, 21st October. The organising committee of Cork Sports Partnership​, LeisureWorld Bishopstown and Cork Institute of Technology  welcome both Cork City Council and Cork County Council​ as sponsors once again for 2018.


We are delighted to have Boston Scientific as sponsors of the Rebel Run A Mile Challenge which will be taking place again this year following a successful pilot in 2017. This programme encourages participants & staff from adult disability services across Cork City & County to increase their fitness through a 4 week walking & jogging programme culminating in a 1 mile challenge event in CIT on Friday, 19th Oct.

With our programme partners The Down Syndrome Centre Cork ​we hope to expand and encourage more services and participants to get involved. A 1 Mile Challenge event will also coincide with our 5k & 10k events on Sun, 21st Oct!


A number of 'Couch 2 5k' Programmes are also taking place across the county from late August so you have no excuse to get out and get active!
