WOMEN planning on running the Cork Mini Marathon are being urged to sign up for a unique training programme which includes fitness and nutrition tips ahead of the big event in September.

Movement – Make it Happen is being offered by Special Olympics Munster in association with fitness instructor Olga Dragon.

The bespoke “feel-good” programme includes three fitness sessions and a class on food and nutrition tips. The organisers are confident it will help participants feel their “absolute best” as they get ready for the marathon in the city on Sunday, September 27.

The three-week programme, beginning September 9, includes a 1-hour training session on Wednesday evenings at Kennedy Park near Cork city and an in-depth talk on food health and nutrition.

All of the proceeds go towards supporting Special Olympics Munster’s mission of changing the lives of people with an intellectual disability through their programme of sport and competition.

Team Ireland's Munster Athletes attended a reception in the SO Munster office where they were recognised for their achievements. Nine of thirteen athletes were there along with their families, friends, coaches, club representatives and volunteers. Local press attended the event and a online video and newspaper report was complied by Cork's Evening Echo (www.eveningecho.ie). Munster Regional Director - Eóin Ó Béara, Munster Committee Chairman - John Spillane and World Game Law enforcement Torch Runner Garda Michella Maloney all said a few words at the event and congratulated the athletes on their many ribbons and medals but more importantly of how well each athlete represented their families, clubs, SO Munster & Ireland. The Munster Athletes were presented with a framed photo of themselves at the World Games as a memento of their experiences at the World Games.
