Haulbowline Junior parkrun to start Sun 14th Jan 2024

Update: - 9th Jan 2024... The inaugural junior 2km parkrun at Haulbowline Park was supposed to start on Sunday 7th January but it can to be cancelled due to ice on the course.

Subject to confirmation, I presume the next date is Sunday 14th January. To be confirmed...


In a previous post, I outlined how there were plans for a new 2km junior parkrun for 4-14 year olds in the new public park on Haulbowline Island in Cork Harbour.

Weather and volunteers permitting, it will be held at the same time on every Sunday at 9:30am.

The course is two 1km loops on a flat tarmac surface and there is plenty of parking at the park.

As can be seen from the map below, the main catchment areas will be Passage West, Monkstown, Carrigaline and of course, Ringaskiddy.

This event is completely free and it will be the eight junior parkrun in Co Cork.

The event website is

Parents can go there, register their kids and get a barcode ID.
