Re: Re: Developments in Cork
Anybody who didn’t know the (very well organised) Cork City Marathon wasn’t going on needs more help than the City Council can give them!![/QUOTE]
I agree in general with your post but specifically re the marathon, while it was indeed superbly organised, I do think the publicity was poor. As I said, I ran in it and I remember that when seeking sponsorship the week before it less than half the people I encountered knew it was on. Moreover most of them had only just heard of it. If you want a big field in a marathon you need big publicity months in advance as you can’t just turn up on the day and give it a lash. I know its much bigger, but the Dublin marathon in October is widely publicised from March onwards every year.
