June 1st, 2015 – 37,000 women took to Dublin’s city centre streets today to participate in the 2015 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon. The event, which is one of the world’s largest all-female events of its kind, sees runners, walkers and joggers of all abilities complete a 10km route and participate in one of the Ireland’s largest fund-raising activities of the year with participants raising much-needed funds for hundreds of causes around the country.
Ladies, it’s almost time to put all that hard training to use and with the start line now in view it is best to make a race day checklist. Even a mental list will reduce any last-minute chaos and allow you prepare correctly for race day. Remember if there is a glitch in your active wardrobe fix it sooner rather than later.
Among the 40,000 women lining up on June 1st to participate in the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon will be 150 representatives of Sloggers to Joggers, a group based in Swords, Co. Dublin with members from all over the northside of Dublin.
