10 for 10 Challenge!

Can you help us!

Every year Sanctuary Runners take part in the Cork City Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay event in great numbers, running shoulder-to-shoulder together in solidarity, friendship and respect with those who are seeking refuge from war, poverty and persecution as well as people who have made Ireland their home through work, study or travel.

This year, the Cork event, which takes place on 4th June 2023, will have a 10k race and we are looking for 10 people from each community, workplace, friend group, secondary school and sports club take part #10for10!

On Thursday 30th March we were joined by the legend that is Sonia O’Sullivan for our first Mardyke training session of 2023! The rain did not deter the large group of Sanctuary Runners who came along to being their Cork City Marathon 10K training in earnest. Every week we will have experienced coaches and legends of Cork athletics leading our sessions. If you would like to take part in any of our sessions before the big day on June 4th, drop us an email to Cork@sanctuaryrunners.ie.
