Echo Women’s Mini Marathon 2023

Organiser: Echo Women’s Mini Marathon 2023
Enter Event (powered by

Sep 17, '23 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Entries are Open Now for 42nd Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon

Mill Road, Cork

12 Noon, Sunday September 17th 2023.

The Course

The Course is due to be officially measured shortly, by a World Athletics accredited measurer. Once that’s done, and the start and finish line positions have been verified, Cork Athletics, in conjunction with title sponsors, The Echo, will post details of the course

The new, proposed, route starts in approximately the same area as before, but on Kennedy Quay, taking in Victoria Rd, tutning left onto Centre Park Rd, and down along to the Marina. We’ll be going down the Marina ,as far as the slip road down to Pairc Ui Chaoimh

From there we go around the Blackrock end of Pairc UI Chaoimh, on the outside, then up between the all-weather pitches and the stadium, and then turn right into the gated GAA car park, and left again after about 100m, out another gate, into the new Marina Park, going up toward the bandstand, then swing left and back down again in front of Pairc Ui Chaoimh, between Pairc Ui Chaoimh itself and the all-weather pitches

At that point, the participants will be going in both directions, with barriers in between. At the end then, after we’ve gone past the all-weather pitches, turn right toward CAB. From there continue straight up Monahan Rd and finish more or less at the same spot as in previous years

The proposed new route has received Garda approval. We hope that the proposed new route will give people, perhaps, their first look at the lovely, and scenic, new Cork City Council Marina Park amenity area

Time Zones

With the intention of enabling a smooth and fast start for everyone, this year’s Mini-Marathon will again feature Time Zones. In addition, everyone will start on Mill Road

The Time zones will be marked on the road leading to the Start Line, with 7 zones in all:


  Zone   Finish Time Approx. Pace
Zone 1 Sub 24 sub 6:30 Minutes/Mile
Zone 2 24 – 32 Mins 6:30 to 8:30 Minutes/Mile
Zone 3 33 – 36 Mins 8:30 to 9:30 Minutes/Mile
Zone 4 37 – 40 Mins 10 to 11 Minutes/Mile
Zone 5 41 – 45 Mins 11 to 12 Minutes/Mile
Zone 6 46-50 Mins 12 to 14 Minutes/Mile
Zone 7 50 Min + 14+ Minutes/Mile


 Time Zones for The Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon

How to Use the Time Zones

Runners and walkers should enter the Time Zone most appropriate to their own target finish time.  If all participants adhere to this, it should make for a streamlined start and a pleasant experience for everyone, runner and walker alike.   The image above gives an indication of the zones, though the view foreshortens them, making some of the zones appear smaller than they actually will be.  Each zone will be sized to adequately cater for the estimated numbers (based on previous year’s Mini-Marathon finish times) in each section 

There are two primary goals behind the introduction of Time Zones:

  • Improved Safety for Everyone, and
  • A smoother Start for all participants, from the fastest, to those who intend taking their leisure

    If everyone starts in a realistic zone for their own individual abilities, we think that the change will prove a major factor in everyone enjoying their 2023 Mini-Marathon experience

Club Runners

We hope that the changes introduced, in recent years, to the Mini-Marathon will continue to attract club runners in large numbers. The time zones has enabled all runners to get straight into their stride pretty much straight away

…We Like It…..We Hope YOU do Too!!
