About this Event

The Southern Regional Assembly as a partner in the MATCH-UP project along with our Stakeholders Cork Transport Mobility Forum and Cork City Council wish to invite the public to join us in celebrating the progress Cork City has made in achieving significant improvements in low carbon multi-modal interchanges in the city.To showcase these improvements we will be hosting a “Race Against Rob” during European Mobility Week on 20th September 2019 in Cork City. World Champion, Olympic Medallist and National Record Holder for the 50km walking race – Rob Heffernan a native of the real capital of Cork will be leading the race. Rob is a community and youth ambassador and will be joined by a number of transition year students and the general public to highlight the 2019 European Mobility Week theme “Walk with Us!” - focusing on safe walking and cycling and the ways active mobility can benefit our health and environment.

The public will “Race against Rob” using other low carbon means of transport including walking, cycling and public transport. The race will commence at the newly refurbished transport hub at Kent Train Station at 11.30 and will include a number of routes between 5km and 11km around Cork City with the finish at Cork City Library on the Grand Parade. The route will include crossing the new Mary Elmes pedestrian and cycle-bridge and will highlight the pedestrian and cycle infrastructure upgraded in recent years.

Places are limited so please register as soon as possible. Your registration pack with your race T-Shirt and other goodies will be available for collection on Friday 13th in Cork City Hall. You will be required to submit a completed photo consent in order to participate. We look forward to seeing you all at our European Mobility Week “Race Against Rob”. Closing date Wed 18th Sept 2019.
