Every Euro Counts

The Vhi Women's Mini Marathon is the biggest all women's event of its kind in the world. Since 1983, nearly 920,000 women have entered the event. It has grown in line with a growth in women's interest in their own health and vitality 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 2014 it is estimated that almost €12m was raised by the participants bringing the total since the race started in 1983 close to €192m. 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.
