There will be two junior races being held at the Cork City Sports International Athletics Meet on Tuesday 28th June at Cork IT Track. There will be a junior men's 1500m race and junior women's 800m race.

This year the races will be earlier in the programme allowing all junior athletes to relax afterwards and enjoy the senior international races. Website available for the events is HERE
