Run with us in this year’s Cork City Marathon as we aim to have 1,000 Sanctuary Runners on the streets of the Rebel City on May 31st. Also we’re calling on the good people of Cork to ‘Open Your Doors’ and put up Sanctuary Runners from across Ireland on the night before the race. For more information please email us at info@sanctuaryrunners.ie 



The Sanctuary Runners enable Irish residents to run alongside, and in solidarity with, asylum seekers and refugees in Direct Provision thereby fostering friendship, positivity and respect while bringing greater awareness to the migration system. A non-profit, and multi-award-winning movement we use running to build sustainable bridges between communities and to show that we are all equal.
