A non-profit, and multi-award-winning movement, the Sanctuary Runners use running to build sustainable bridges between communities and to promote equality and inclusion.

The Sanctuary Runners organise running events where Irish residents or visitors to Ireland can run alongside, and in solidarity with, migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, thereby fostering friendship, positivity and respect while bringing greater awareness to the migration system.

There are Sanctuary Runners groups all across Ireland, with groups in Cork meeting to run in the following locations: Cork City, Clonakilty, Fermoy, Macroom, Mallow, Millstreet, Youghal. Visitors are welcome to join any of the park runs that are organised regularly around Cork, and support our movement.
