Cork City Marathon Postponed until Sun 6th September 2020


It was announced a few days ago that the 2020 Cork City Marathon has been postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The organisers have now confirmed the new date as Sunday the 6th of September 2020.

Press Release : Thursday 19th March 2020 - The Cork City Marathon organisers have confirmed the new date for the 2020 Cork City Marathon.  The Cork City Marathon will now take place on 6th September 2020.

In light of the country’s move to the delay stage of Covid-19 management and in the interest of public health, the Cork City Marathon, which was due to take place on May 31st, has been postponed until 6th September 2020.

Adrienne Rodgers, Race Director and Director of Services at Cork City Council, said “The priority for us right now is to do everything we can do to keep you and your families safe.  The Cork City Marathon has been rescheduled until 6th September 2020 and we look forward to welcoming you then for another great Cork City Marathon.”

Mags Connelly, Safety and Ops Director at Davis Events, said “The last few weeks have been challenging for everyone. We take participant safety extremely seriously and know that with the current strain on emergency resources, we wouldn’t be able to provide the world-class response teams needed for our marathon in May. The good news for Cork City is that this event will go ahead on 6th September.”

Participants who have already entered will be automatically deferred to the rescheduled date.

I’m going to keep training and run a marathon myself on the day. I am 53 and have no idea how to set up a virtual marathon. I’m on Garmin so if anybody fancies joining in we can do everything except the tunnel, and as I am a hacker there will be no winner, unless I’m the only runner in which car I expect a gold medal.
