“Cork City Council recognises the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, as stated in its Corporate Plan, it is striving to be a City of Health & Wellbeing.” said a spokesperson.
“The Council supports and provides opportunities that will suit all, such as Cork City Marathon (registration now open for 2024) which now includes a 10k and welcomes runners as young as 15. It is the only marathon in Ireland that offers concessions for participants on social welfare and our Sanctuary Runners.
“Parks all over the city host Parkruns, including junior park runs (for ages 4–14 years) every week. Most city parks now have either an Outdoor Gym or multi-game area to use free of charge. For the more mature citizens, the council works with the FAI on Walking Football, which is held every Friday in the Mardyke.”
