Submit your parkrun 5k finish time by Wednesday 9 May
The 2018 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon will take place on Sunday 3 June and is the biggest all female event of its kind in the world and Ireland’s largest one-day charity fundraising event. Over 35,000 women are expected to walk, jog and run the 10K route starting in Fitzwilliam Square and finishing on Baggot St.
Women who expect to finish the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon 10k course in under 75 minutes can use their parkrun finish time to determine their Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon start wave.
If you have completed the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon in 2016 or 2017, you will automatically be verified if your expected finish time is the same as your 2016 or 2017 result, and your name and date of birth match your previous result. If you’re targeting a faster time or are a new or returning runner why not use your fast feet in a recent parkrun to make sure you’re starting in the most appropriate wave come race day on Sunday 3 June 3!
A parkrun (or another 5k) finish time of 30 minutes or under will see you start in the ’75-minute wave’ while you will need a 10km finish time of 60 minutes or under to enter the ’60-minute wave’. Times must be from within the past two years and can be submitted within the ‘Manage My Booking’ section at www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie before 9 May.
