Gallery: Cork City Marathon 2007

They sweated, blistered, coughed, spluttered and soiled themselves but Corkonians turned out in their thousands for the first Cork marathon in over twenty years. The sun was blazing on the June weekend and the going wasn't always easy.

Grated nipples, raw shredded feet and bellies full of Lucazade sport didn't stop the flow of runners crossing the finish line from the minute Cork winner Alan O'Shea crossed it after a mere 2 hours and 27 minutes, until the final competitor crossed the line last Tuesday night.

Photographer Siobh·n Whooley has sent us some of her photos from that heavenly day in June and we've opened up a brand new folder in our gallery, dedicated to the men and women who either finished the race or collapsed in a heap around the Model Farm Road. You're all winners - to various different degrees though.

If you'd like to add your marathon and/or Cork photos to the gallery please email them to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
