At the weekend.
Members of the Sanctuary Runners took part in the Cork City Marathon and the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin while founder of the initiative Graham Clifford addressed the Cork contingent after the run (above).
Olivia Kelleher, in The Irish Times, reports:
A group of runners promoting solidarity with and wellbeing of asylum-seekers living in Direct Provision played a major part in the Cork City Marathon on Sunday.
Bus Éireann stepped in to provide transport to bring members of the Sanctuary Runners group from the Direct Provision centre at Kinsale Road in Cork to Patrick Street for the marathon.
Over 350 people from accommodation centres nationally and individuals running to support them took part in the marathon, the majority of them in relay teams.
