The 2019 Cook Medical Women’s Mini Marathon was launched today by Mayor Michael Sheahan at The Strand Hotel Limerick. Now in its 21st year, up to 3,000 participants from all over Ireland are expected to take part.

The event kicks off at 12pm on Sunday 29 September 2019, at the University of Limerick Sports Arena. Participants of all ages will run, jog, or walk the 5km and 10km courses while raising funds for personally chosen charities in Limerick, the Mid-West and nationwide.

“The 21st year of this event is a significant milestone. The Women’s Mini Marathon has gone from strength to strength over recent years, and we are very excited about the 2019 event, which promises to be bigger and better than ever,” said Race Director John Cleary. “We are looking forward to seeing women of all ages and abilities taking part on Sunday 29 September.”

2019 marks Cook Medical’s fourth consecutive year as title sponsor of the Women’s Mini Marathon, a sponsorship that has been extended until 2021.

“At Cook Medical, patient care, health and wellness are at the core of all of our work. To maintain good health and a balanced lifestyle that incorporates regular exercise is important, and we’re delighted to support and encourage general fitness and well-being among the local community and beyond,” said Angela Moloney, director of Ethics & Compliance, EMEA, at Cook Medical. “We’re proud to be part of such a long-standing event that celebrates the women of Limerick and encourages people to improve their health and fitness.”
