Be A Star for Our Little Stars and join our Mini Marathon team!

 

 

Grab your girls for this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon!

 

Entries for this year’s mini marathon open on Wednesday, March 1st and we cannot wait to have our biggest and best event yet!

 

Last year we smashed our Mini Marathon army our previous Mini Marathon fundraising records by having an incredible 181 women run for us and raise a staggering €35,774!! This year we’d love to get 250 women on board and raise €40,000 and we’re confident that it can be done!

 

 

 

Be A Star!

 

We’re keeping the theme of 'Be A Star for Our Little Stars' for this year’s event. We call our inspiring service users our little stars and we have stars in our logo so we feel it’s a good fit! A lot of last year’s participants really got on board with the theme which we absolutely loved!

 

We'll have a face painter there on the day to make sure your faces are full of stars and we'd love to see you rocking stars in any way at all - star headbands, stars on your clothes - whatever you'd like!  

 

 

Before the race

 

We've reserved a section of Sam's Bar on Dawson Street (it's next door to Cafe En Seine, across the road from the Mansion House) where you'll be able to drop off your bags from 12.30pm.

 

There will be a few of us there to keep an eye on them but please don't leave anything valuable in them! We'll have the section for the day so, when you're finished the race, come back for a (very well deserved!) drink and we'll have some platters doing the rounds! 

 

 

After the race!

 

You’ve just walked/ run / sprinted (!) 10km - you deserve to let your hair down (or just sit down – whichever you would prefer)! Join us again in Sam’s Bar on Dawson Street for a few beverages where we’ll have live entertainment and food platters ready for you. Not to mention our staff will be ready to personally thank each of you for your generosity and efforts!

 

 

 

Spread the word!

 

We're really hoping that this year will be our biggest and best Mini Marathon yet! Last year we had 90 runners and I'd love to double that figure! Take a look at the fun that our ladies had last year here or the above poster on your Facebook/ Twitter / Instagram etc and get your friends and family involved. It's always a fantastic day out for everyone! We've known some fun-loving men to stick on a wig and a dress and take part so that's also an option...
