The Cork Run

Date: Sunday, 19 May 2019 10.30am

Start and Finish Line: Blackrock National Hurling Club, Church Road, Cork

Bib collection and late registration will take place from 9am to 10:15am at the Blackrock National Hurling Club, Church Road, Blackrock. There are changing facilities and ample parking available. Participants will walk from there to the start and finish line. Refreshments will be available in Blackrock National Hurling Club after the event.

The map of the route is below, and takes place largely on the Old Blackrock Railway line. 

We would encourage all members of the legal community in Cork to take part, with their staff, families and friends (including their 4 legged ones!) and support the event, making it a fun day out for all, while supporting a very worthwhile cause.

We will be working in conjunction with The HOPE Foundation and S.H.A.R.E., our local Cork charity, to support local homeless.

Let’s help to raise €300,000 together again with the Dublin run and cycle. All money raised in Cork will be divided between both charities. There is no registration fee, so please try your best to raise as much sponsorship as possible! Receive a goodie bag and a technical t-shirt as our way of saying thank you!


9am: Registration – Blackrock Hurling Club
10.30am: Run Start
Followed by refreshments, prize presentation and BBQ at Blackrock Hurling Club.
