Quick facts about Cork City Marathon 2013
The Cork Marathon is an official 42.195km (26 miles and 385 yards) marathon course. Cork is a full member of AIMS, the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races. More on the marathon course here.
In 2010 we changed the marathon course to remove a tough hill on the Model Farm Road at about the 21/22-mile mark. The changes flattened the overall course profile significantly and proved to be popular with the participants. The downside of the changes, however, is that the halfway point of the full marathon course is now on the narrowest part of the course. This means we canâ€™t have a relay changeover point at or anywhere close to halfway. For teams of two, there isnâ€™t anyway to share the course equally - one member has to run at least 15.5 miles.
