UNIVERSITY of Limerick Arena will host the first in-person Cook Mini Marathon (run/jog/walk over 5/10km) in two years on Sunday next.

Now in its 24th edition, race director John Cleary told the Limerick Post that he isabsolutely delighted to be back this year with our physical event, allowing everyone to come together and enjoy the Mini Marathon”. 

“We were overwhelmed with the response to our virtual events over the past two years (which raised €80,000 for local charities), and now this year we are once again especially looking forward to seeing everyone of all ages and abilities taking part.”

Added Angela Moloney of Cook: “It will celebrate inclusivity and togetherness. Whether you are running for fitness, walking with friends or family, or cheering at the finish line, this is a truly remarkable event. We are yet again proud to be title sponsors of this event with charity, fun, and friendship at its core.”

Participants are encouraged to partake in the Zumba Warm Up from 11am with the real action to commence from 12 noon. Visit for registration.
