Women’s Mini Marathon

The Vhi Womens Mini Marathon will be taking place on the 5th May.

The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is the biggest all women’s event of its kind in the world. It has grown from its beginnings in 1983 with almost 9,000 participants to a staggering 41,006 women participating in 2014.

Since 1983 nearly 992,000 women have entered the event – and the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon had a record field of over 41,006 in 2014. This event has grown as women’s interest in their own health and vitality has developed over the last three decades.

Indeed, it is not only women who have benefited from the event, but the charities are also the big winners. In 2016 it is estimated that almost €6m was raised by the participants bringing the total since the race started in 1983 close to €203m. All charities benefit as it is the women themselves who decide who they will support and many local causes gain vital revenue from the event. It is now the biggest single day charity event in the country.

The closing date for entries is the 28th April. €20 Entry fee.
