Tens of thousands of runners and walkers have taken to the streets for mini marathons in Dublin and Cork.

Around 40,000 women took part in the Flora Women's Mini Marathon in Dublin.

Elsewhere, over 8,000 runners braved the warm temperatures - including nearly 500 transition year students taking part in the Youth Challenge - for the The Cork City Marathon.

Olympian Pauline Curley won the Dublin race.

The Tullamore Harriers runner edged out Angela McCann, who was bidding for three in a row, with a course record of 2.47:44.

The winning relay team was East Cork Athletic Club who came home in 2.18:06.

Poland’s Bartosz Muzerski fended off Clonliffe Harriers’ Gary O’Hanlon to take the Cork City Marathon by just 23 seconds.

O’Hanlon was aiming to make it two in eight days following his victory in Newry last weekend, but it proved too much of an ask as Muzerski pulled away in the final mile to win in a time of 2.28:29.
