The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is a 10k road race, which takes place every June bank holiday weekend in Dublin city centre. It is the largest women’s event of its kind in the world.
In 1983, 9,000 women took part in the inaugural Women’s Mini Marathon, and the event reached a record attendance in 2014 with 41,006 women taking part. A staggering 1.1 million women have entered the event over its 40 years.
In 2020 and 2021, the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon took place virtually, due to Covid-19.
Hundreds of charities are also big winners. Women taking part in the event choose which charity they will support and raise funds for, and any local causes gain vital funds from the event. The Vhi Women’s Mini marathon is one of the largest one-day charity events in the country.
The Women’s Mini Marathon mission is to organise a world-class event in a safe environment and enable participants to raise much-needed funds for charities. We are committed to promoting the development of a healthy lifestyle for women and providing a great 10km event which they can walk, jog or run together to achieve their personal goals.
