MARATHON MISSION is a High Performance initiative of Athletics Ireland. The initiative received a warm welcome from athletes and coaches when it kicked off in Belfast last Saturday. On Saturday morning August 25th at 11am, Marathon Mission comes to Cork CIT promoting its message of raising Elite Marathon standards throughout the 32 counties of Ireland.
The aim of the mission is “To nurture an environment for Irish Marathoners that will lead them to compete with distinction in major championships and being competitive on an annual basis in the Dublin Marathon in the years ahead”. Typically if you are an athlete who has run the following type of times at any of the following distances and are anxious to either improve your Marathon time or attempt the event for the first time you should consider yourself more than welcome. Marathon minded Coaches are also encouraged to attend.
