Sign up to the Vhi 2022 Women’s Mini Marathon

Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon Launch

For the first time in two years, the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is back with a physical event on Sunday 5 June! Our friends at Vhi are inviting people of all fitness levels to celebrate the return by walking, jogging or running the 10k distance in Dublin this June.


Vhi’s ambassadors, Roz Purcell and Aimee Connolly will be taking part on 5 June, and have been keeping us posted on how they are getting on with the Vhi training plans for the past few weeks. If you’re thinking of signing up or are looking for some training motivation, make sure to keep up to date with their journeys on their Instagram channels, @RozannaPurcell and @AimeeConnolly_Com.


Fitness ambassador @Belle_Azzure, and food ambassador @HealthyFitBella_, have been sharing their expertise by providing easy to follow plans for all. For 12 weeks up until event day, all participants can enjoy nutritious recipes and exercise videos over on Instagram @VhiWMM.


There is still plenty of time to sign up for the big day, and if you can’t make it to the physical event in Dublin, make sure to grab a ticket for the virtual version before they’re gone! To register or find out more information, visit https://www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie/.
