Bus Éireann kindly stepped in to provide transport to bring Sanctuary runners from the Direct Provision centre in Kinsale Road in Cork to Patrick Street today for the city marathon.
There was an early start for runners of the Irish Examiner Cork City Marathon with a start time of 8.30am.
Former World Champion and Olympic bronze medallist Rob Heffernan has donated running gear to an initiative that aims to bring together those living in direct provision with the wider Irish community through sport.
Meet the running mates who are part of a first-of-a-kind initiative which is forging links with people living in direct provision.
