The Echo Virtual Women's Mini Marathon

Early Bird Virtual Entry

This year we celebrate the 40th Echo Women’s Mini Marathon. The event will take place as a virtual offering again this year and we are hoping that as many people will take part to help support the many Cork charities that depend on the event’s participants who raise much-needed funds every year. 

Cork Athletics is considering a live event and a decision will be made on this during the summer as it will depend on Government and Sport Ireland advice/regulations as it emerges, see below statement.

Statement from Cork Athletics. 

At present, it isn't clear if an 'In-Person' live event will be able to go ahead this year and so we have opened entry for our Virtual Women's Mini-Marathon. 

A decision on the live event will be made as early as possible, but if you purchase a virtual event registration you will have the option of changing to an 'In-person' entry if you wish. The Virtual Event will go ahead even if a live event becomes possible. The Early-Bird offer of €5 entry discount will close if entry opens for the 'In-Person' event, with Early-Bird entrants retaining their €5 discount on the live event, if they wish. 

About the Event.
The event is 6km and you can complete that however you want either by walking, running or jogging in your back garden! 

In the event that the live race cannot go ahead again this year, we encourage you to join us virtually in the spirit of the event on what would have been race day on September 19 and complete your 6k, (We ask that you adhere to all government guidelines regarding public safety and social distancing that are in place at the time when completing your 6K).

The results portal will be open from September 16, if you can’t complete your 6K on September 19 you can also do it between September 16 – September 26. You can upload your results and download a certificate of completion.  

We hope that the people of Cork will continue to support this fantastic event as they have always done over the past 40 years. Best of luck!
