Limerick, Ireland – The Cook Medical Women’s Mini Marathon 2019 was launched in Limerick yesterday by Michael Sheahan, Mayor of Limerick City and County, 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 noon on Sunday, September 29, at the University of Limerick Sports Arena. Participants of all ages will run, jog, or walk the 5 km and 10 km courses while raising funds for personally chosen charities in Limerick, the Mid-West and nationwide.




The route starts and finishes at the University of Limerick. This event has become a household event as women run or walk while some push their babies in their buggies. Other family members attend on the day to support their wives, sisters, girlfriends or friends.

“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.

“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, Cook Medical Race Champion, and 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.”
