On Wednesday evening 21 December 2022 we held a series of graded miles at the Mardyke Track.
On the night we raised €420 which was contributed by those present. The Club added to this donation and in January 2023 presented a total of €600 to Cork Penny Dinners, a critical and vitally needed, local charity.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in arranging the event in any way and to those who managed clocks, rang bells etc.
We also presented the individual and team medals for the National Marathon Championship from the Dublin Marathon. A huge congratulations to Niamh, Katie, Irene, Cathal and Jeremy.
Our good friend Joe Murphy of Joe Anne photos kindly joined us for the evening and took some great photos. You can flick through the photos here:
