Sonia O’Sullivan 3K Challenge

At the 1987 Cork City Sports, a young Sonia O’ Sullivan set a national junior record of 9.01 in the 3000m. This performance put Sonia on the map and launched the career of the greatest athlete Ireland has ever produced.

Thirty years on this junior record still stands. For the 2017 Cork City Sports Sonia is laying down a challenge to all clubs to enter a team of junior girls to run a 3k relay in an attempt to break the thirty year old 9.01 record.
