Cook Medical launches all-inclusive Mini Marathon

Limerick, Ireland – The 2022 Cook Medical Mini Marathon will return to the University of Limerick on Sunday 25th September for the first time since 2019. The race which is now in its 24th year was launched today, Monday, August 8, by the Deputy Mayor of Limerick, Kieran O’Hanlon, at the Limerick Strand Hotel.

This year’s event will see the name change from “Women’s Mini Marathon” to “Mini Marathon” to welcome everyone to come together to take part. Over the last two years, the virtual event raised over €80,000 for local charities. Event organisers hope that this year’s all-inclusive race will continue to raise much-needed funds for charity.

Speaking at the launch at the Limerick Strand hotel, race director, John Cleary saidWe are absolutely delighted to be back this year with our physical event, allowing everyone to come together and enjoy the Cook Medical Mini Marathon. We were overwhelmed with the response to our virtual events over the past two years, this year we are especially looking forward to seeing everyone of all ages and abilities taking part on Sunday 25th September.”

Cook Medical has been the title sponsor of the Mini Marathon for eight years, a sponsorship that has been extended until 2024.

Angela Moloney, Director of Ethics & Compliance, EMEA, at Cook Medical, said  “The 2022 Cook Medical Mini Marathon will celebrate inclusivity and togetherness, and 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.”

The event kicks off at noon on Sunday, 25th September 2022, at the University of Limerick Sports Arena. Participants of all ages will run, jog, or walk the 5 km and 10 km courses at their own pace while raising funds for personally chosen charities in Limerick, the Mid-West, and nationwide.
