Cork Evening Echo Women’s Mini Marathon 2018: Run for the Cats!

The Evening Echo Women’s Mini-Marathon 2018 will take place in Cork on the 16th of September at 1pm.  It is a fun event that helps to raise money for many charities.  You can walk, jog or run the 4 miles.  Although it is a women’s mini-marathon, men are also welcome to take part as long as they are dressed as women!

We will all meet at 12pm outside the Clayton Hotel to hand out tee-shirts and will take group photo at 12.30pm sharp so that runners have enough time to get to the starting line for 1pm.

All participants will receive one of our “It’s hip to be tipped!” tee-shirts

To take part in aid of Community Cats Network, please follow these steps:

1- Register for the mini-marathon on the Evening Echo’s website.

2- Create a fundraising page on IDonate (tip: pages with a description of why you are raising funds for CCN and a photo tend to raise more funds).

3- Send an email to with your details (name, address, contact number and tee-shirt size) or fill in the form below and we’ll send you your sponsorship pack.

4- Start fundraising by using your sponsorship card or sharing your IDonate fundraising page on social media or via email.

Note that ALL sponsorship cards (even empty ones) must be returned to Community Cats Network at or after the event. Bring funds raised in a closed envelope with your name on it.

If you cannot take part, why not sponsor one of the participants running for Community Cats?

Cat Trappers on the Run

“We are always running left, right and centre with our traps to attend to cats that need to be neutered. For one day though, we will swap our traps for a pair of running (hmm, walking) shoes in order to raise some funds to help Community Cats Network with the neuterig of stray and feral cats, as well as the care of foster cats and kittens.

Em, Jackie and Rosie are all cat trappers for Community Cats Network and we are in together in this challenge. 4 miles might seem like nothing to you, but for us it is quite a challenge, so please, give us a little encouragement and help us to raise some much needed funds for the kitties in need!

Thanks for your support!”
