The marathon is now in its 13th year and up to 8,000 individuals are expected out on the course.
The Full Marathon, Team Relay and Youth Challenge start on St Patrick’s St at 8.30am. The Half Marathon starts on Albert Rd at 10.15am.
The Cork City Marathon is widely recognised for its inclusivity with countless personal stories behind many of the runners.
The event is set to be the most environmentally friendly race to date – medals will not be individually wrapped in plastic; water-station bottles are made of 30% recycled plastic; and runners crossing the finish line will be offered water in reusable tumblers provided by refill.ie.
Diversions and rolling road closures will be in place from 5.30am until around 6pm and the Black Ash park-and-ride bus will operate every 10 minutes from 7.30am to 7.15pm to the city.
