The Echo Virtual Women's Mini Marathon 2020 - 6K Your Way!

Earlier this summer we announced that the 39th Echo Women’s Mini Marathon wouldn’t go ahead on Centre Parc road due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are happy to announce with organisers Cork Athletics Association that the event will take place as virtual offering 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.

The event will be free to register. It’s 6km and you can complete that however you want either by walking, running or jogging in your back garden! When you are registering you will have the option to purchase a souvenir medal and race number to be posted to you.

Though the live event cannot go ahead this year, we encourage you to join us in the spirit of the event on what would have been race day on September 20 and complete your 6k, (We ask that you adhere to all government guidelines regarding public safety and social distancing when completing your 6K). You can upload your results via the results portal and you can download a certificate of completion. The results portal will be open from September 18, if you can’t complete your 6K on September 20 you can also do it from September 18 – September 27.

We hope that the people of Cork will continue to support this fantastic event in these unprecedented times as they have done over the past 39 years. Best of luck!
