Results & Photos of the 2024 Cork City Marathon - Sun 2nd June 2024

It looks as of the forecast was more or less spot on, blue skies and sunshine in the morning with some cloud rolling in around noon. The reality is that it was more hazy and broken sunshine than complete cover so in the end, it was another hot Cork City marathon. Let's hope they had enough water out on the course unlike last year.

In terms of numbers, it looks as if the number of finishers is up for the full marathon and half-marathon and down for the 10k. Between the three events, there are about 9000 finishers.

Well run this year, plenty of water available, support on the route across the full was fantastic and atmosphere was super throughout, heat was tough at times this morning but a great race

No issues with organisation this year as far as I could see, plenty of water. The atmosphere on the half marathon route was brilliant, the people of Cork really came out on their droves to support this event. The heat was difficult but no doubt I'll be back again next year.

Lots of water this year. A great marathon, even though many suffered in the heat.

We all complained last year and rightly so, last year they got a lot wrong with the poor quality t-shirts, shortage of water and cutting corners with timber medals. Credit this year must go to Eamonn Hayes and his team. They corrected everything. Great goodie bag, lovely mug, good quality tops, good expo, an abundance of water and brilliant medals. The atmosphere all over the City this morning was brilliant, such positive energy. Well done to everyone who completed the 10K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon in very hot conditions.

Such a fantastic event today, brilliant atmosphere, really well organised and calm despite there being 1000s competing! Hats off to all involved in making it such a success

An amazing event today. Dare I say it, that finish on Pana is better than Dublin.

Superb..... We'll done Cork. Good price structure, half maybe a small bit price excessive. Full if entered early great price and 10k absolutely ideal. To just make the 2nd half a little less hilly and the weather gods less cruel and you have an event that I would have no problem making it as the national marathon.

Well done to all involved in organising!.I volunteered Friday (first time volunteering) and there was a lot of positive energy and feeling about the race even then.🙌🙌

Goodness that was special!! It’s days like that will put will put Cork City Marathon weekend firmly on the running destinations calendar! A huge thank you & congratulations to all involved in making this year so special!

Really enjoyed the half marathon but the toilet situation at the start was crazy 200 + women mainly queuing at 10am before the race. 12 toilets only !! Most men peeing in the bushes! Some of us women had to back into the bush and pee too totally ridiculous. I was on my own and thankfully some kind older lady stood in front to give me some privacy. Plenty of toilets at the finish line and not one person waiting. Please take this into consideration for 2025. Throughly enjoy otherwise

First time running the full since 2011, support along the course was 100 times better, plenty of water, Dolores and Fozzy were great pacers. Musgraves to Model Farm Road makes or breaks it. Fair Play a great event

Not enough toilets at the start line, hundreds queueing before the marathon!

Fantastic event. Great goodie bag, t-shirt & medal, and unbelievable support from volunteers & spectators. Thank you to the locals who sprayed us with water, gave us jellies, orange segments & ice drinks. A special thank you to St. John's Ambulance volunteers in the City Hall who helped me after fainting.

What a great day for Cork running. The organisers should be so proud.

Toilet situation is something that could definitely be improved on, especially with the Marathon and 10k starting so close together. The Marathon runners under serious stress trying to get to the loo and loads of 10k people ahead of them. Some of the quicker lads definitely missed the start time as they couldn't then get to the front of the corral. Perhaps next year someone could be stewarding the bathroom and insure marathon bibs get preference? Just a suggestion

Well done to all the organisers and to the people of cork for fantastic support. First timer doing the half. The atmosphere n everything about the day was amazing

Fantastic organisation, plenty of water, goodie bags excellent. The support on the HM course was superb, and the hose piped and portable shower were just great. I really like the mug which will get daily use. The t-shirt is nice. Kudos to the paramedics who were kept busy. My only quibble - maybe I'm being petty- is the widening of age categories to let the youth in e.g. 55-64 instead of 55-59 etc. I assume this was done to reduce the cost of prizes but it just rankled a little. Obviously your time is your time, and it's not about winning, but still...Overall I thought the organisers did a fantastic job.

Not enough toilets throughout. Had to go in ditch and also someone's house as waited for Miles and saw nothing...
