The June bank holiday weekend in the Rebel County is synonymous with the Cork City Marathon.

This iconic event will see participants of all fitness levels and running abilities step up to the Marathon, Half Marathon or Relay on Sunday, June 2. I

n preparation for race day, the organisers are asking volunteers to get in touch if they’re available and willing to be part of the crew that makes this great event happen.

With a growing number of participants, the Cork Marathon organisers need more help than ever.

A plea is being made for volunteers who are willing to help out, particularly on race day itself, Sunday June 2.

Organisers would be delighted with extra help for stewarding on the course, being part of a water-station team, entertaining the athletes, or assisting at City Hall on race day.
