European Week of Sport & Irish parkruns

The European Week of Sport takes place between the 10-18 September with the aim of promoting sport and physical activity across Europe. One of the ways of promoting activity in Ireland is the weekly 5k parkruns throughout the country.

This a map of the current parkruns in the country at the moment including the six in Cork.

As you can see, there are cluster of parkruns around Dublin and Belfast but hardly anything near Cork City. It also makes clear just where the parkruns are not happening at the moment.

This week of activity is also being promoted by Operation Transformation  so there may well be a jump in numbers at the parkruns over the next two weekends.

You might remember that the Operation Transformation surge in numbers at the Tramore Valley Park in the Spring effectively killed it off due to parking issues.
