The announcement of the Irish Examiner as title sponsor of the Cork City Marathon brings together two great Cork organisations.
The benefit of this partnership to Cork City Marathon is significant as the event continues to reach out to all sectors of society and not just to elite runners. The support of one of Ireland’s leading newspapers will also be a vital tool in promoting the event nationwide and establishing it as a major fundraising vehicle for both local and national charities.
