Cork City Marathon, 1/2 & 10km

A wise man once said that ‘difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations’ and that couldn’t have been more apt this morning in Cork.

Well done to the 9 Youghal AC athletes who took on the marathon challenge, 10 for the 1/2 and 11 for the 10km… It was a tough day for running but ye put your months of training to the test, gave it your all and did the club proud…

You can all enjoy the rest of your weekends now and plan your race
