Latest info about Cork City Marathon entries...

The latest info from the organisers of the Cork City Marathon is that entries for the Half-Marathon are now full and they have extended the closing date for the full until Tuesday.

From the organisers......
(1) Marathon and Relay online entry will stay open until Tuesday 21st May. If your marathon or team hard-copy entry is in the post to arrive on or before Wednesday, we'll also be able to accept that. We'll also accept Youth Team entries until Wednesday, but you'll need to contact the marathon office for entry forms.

Online entry for the HALF MARATHON is now closed.

If you have a half entry in the post and we receive it on or before Tuesday 21st, we should be able to get you a place. Please note that we're dealing with a large backlog of paper entries. We will contact you only if we DON'T have a place for you. We'll get the backlog in over the next few days and get postal confirmation out to everyone as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.

(2) A very late-night update after a weekend of struggling through postal entries! Our marathon and relay online entries are open through this Tuesday. The half online is closed. We'll see what the postal entries are like today and Tuesday and will, of course, reopen entry if we have places left. At the moment, there are about 60 places so we'll update you on that as soon as possible.
BTW - apologies to people who think we're not answering the phone. Our system apparently doesn't give an engaged tone when we're on another call...and it's been busy!
