As part of the World Mini-Games coming up in Cork City, there will be a 5 km road race as part of the activities.

From the organisers.........Race will start on the UCC Mardyke end of the Mardyke Walk and will finish on the track in UCC.  The route will involve 2 looped circuits, around the length of the Mardyke Walk and the Western Road.  The race will be chipped. It is open to all levels. Those that register online, post their previous PB and then if that PB is broken on the morning, they will be sent a t-shirt acknowledging that 'I Beat my PB at the WMG'.
