The Evening Echo Women’s Mini Marathon will take place in September in Cork.

It is the biggest event of its kind in Munster. It has grown from its beginnings in 1980 with only 300 participants to over 10,000 participants in 2012.

Whether you are a seasoned runner or on a get fit mission or you will be joining a group of friends to enjoy the walk, the Mini Marathon is suitable for everyone, with women choosing to run, jog or walk depending on their fitness level.
