Fitness hub FitLive.ie is bringing its Run Series to Cork with the Cork Airport Midnight Runway Run. Event partners Derval O’Rourke, Karl Henry and Irish Olympian Mick Clohisey are calling on those looking for a unique and different running experience to join them as they take to the Cork runway for a 5km midnight run, the second leg of the Spar Fitlive series.
Taking place at midnight on Friday, 17 November, Cork Airport has closed operations for one night only, giving runners the opportunity to take on the flat, fast Cork Airport runway under the stars at night – a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The event ties in with Spar’s brand positioning, where “health and wellbeing is a big focus” according to Colin Donnelly, Spar sales director.
“We are delighted to be bringing the second leg of our Run Series to Cork following our launch run in Dublin’s Phoenix Park earlier this year,” Donelly said.
“We had a great response to our free eight-week fitness programme that ran on Fitlive.ie and with the Irish Independent giving people exercise tips, nutritional advice, workouts and running plans created by Karl Henry.
Those interested in a registering, can do so at www.events.fitlive.ie/spar-fitlive-run-series-cork-runway-run with an entry fee of €25 or €22 for groups of three or more. Participants will receive a goodie bag with a t-shirt, medal, refreshments, race chip timing and crossing line video.
