Vhi Womenís Mini Marathon Launch

Vhi has officially launched the 2023 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon which will be taking place on Sunday 4 June at 12:30pm in Dublin City Centre.


This year’s Vhi ambassadors are:

Vhi is proud to partner with both parkrun and the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon and are strong supporters of helping Irish women live longer, stronger and healthier lives.


Vhi recently conducted research that examines Irish women’s walking and running habits. Results have found that 77% of women believe that signing up to a mass participation event, like the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon with friends or family would help them to achieve their walking or running goals. Something the parkrun community can certainly relate to!


With this in mind, participants will be supported every step of the way up until the 4 th June. Fitness expert Dearbhla (@belle_azzure) has provided easy to follow 12-week training plans, suitable for all fitness levels. Food enthusiast Lorraine (@HealthyFitBella_) has created a range of healthy and delicious recipes for you to enjoy as you prepare for the big day.


Find the training plans and recipes available here.


Sign up is now open, and Vhi look forward seeing you on Sunday 4 June!
