Race Entry Rules & Regulations
This is an All Female event, so you must be female to take part.
You must be 14 years of age or older to participate.
You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the Runner or Elite Runner Categories. (This is an AAI ruling.)
Women who expect to finish the 10km distance in 75mins or under will require a qualifying time. If you have completed the race in 2018 or 2017 in under 75 mins, you will automatically be verified assuming your name and date of birth match your previous result. A parkrun time of 30mins or under will also allow you to qualify for the 61 - 75 min wave. Results from a chipped 10k race in the last two years are required for the under 60 min wave. Name, date and time must be clearly visible when submitting race details. We cannot accept times from Garmin, Strava or other tracking devices. All qualifying times must be submitted by 3rd May 2019. We cannot accept times after this date.
You must be in good health and physically prepared to take on the challenge. It is strongly recommended that you train for the Event. If you have not exercised before or for some time, you should consult your doctor before commencing your training for the Event. You must complete all the required medical information fields on the back of your race number prior to participating in the Event.
You are required to wear your official race number on the front of your singlet/shirt to participate in Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon.
No un-official vehicles, prams, bikes, in-line skates, skateboards, motorised wheelchairs or any type of motorised device will be allowed on the course.
No animals/pets are allowed except Guide dogs, in which case we would encourage the owners to start at the back of the race where there is sufficient room for the dog to be seen, to avoid injury to the dog or to other participants.
Each participant will be provided with a clear, re-usable drawstring bag, which they can bring with them on race day. Alternatively they can leave this bag in the baggage drop area located in Merrion Square. Only official WMM clear bags can be left in the baggage drop area. There will be no large bags permitted at any location on race day.
Competitors must start in the official start Area for the Category they have qualified for, at the official start time and keep to the full officially measured course.
It is the responsibility of the competitor to familiarise themselves with the event rules and any Race Information as may be published by Womens’s Mini Marathon Limited.
Cancellations and Refunds
Entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and entries are NON-TRANSFERABLE. In entering the event, you understand that the entry fee goes solely towards covering the costs of organizing the event. Once we receive and accept your entry, no refunds will be issued if you cannot participate. You may not give or sell your number to anyone else.
We reserve the right to reduce the course distance, change the course, or make any other amendment to the Event that we deem necessary in order to stage the Event. Any change to the Event will be communicated to you at the Event or sooner if practical to do so.
Should the course distance be reduced as per above for the avoidance of doubt you agree that the Event is still deemed to be staged and that we will not be liable to you for any refund.
In circumstances where the event is cancelled as a result of inclement weather or for reasons which are outside the control of Women’s Mini Marathon Limited, any refund of entry free will be entirely at the discretion of Women’s Mini Marathon Limited.

I accept that the onus is on me to ascertain whether there are any risks associated with me taking part in the activity and confirm that I am not aware of any medical condition or impairment that may be detrimental to my health if I participate in the activity.
