Online Entry closes today Sunday 26th April....There is still time to get your entry in for this year’s Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon. Enter online today at www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie or enter using an entry form which was available in the Herald on Saturday 25th April 2015.
You can decide to walk, jog or run on your own or with a group. Why not get a group of your friends together or get a group from the office to form a team. It’s a great way to achieve your fitness goal for 2015 and there’s still plenty of time to improve your fitness level and be ready for 1st June 2015.
Walk at your own pace or set a time you would like to complete the race in. There’s plenty of help available so why not follow the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon Support Team, Louise Heraghty for training and David Gillick for Nutrition. You will find their advice weekly in the Herald, you can also download the VhiWmm app on Android or App Store or you can view the weekly plans on www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie
