Running for good – Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon

The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is back for its 42nd year, taking place on Bank Holiday Sunday, June 2, 2024. 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 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. 

Since its inception, participants have raised over €226 million for charitable causes throughout Ireland. Participants decide which charity they will support. The Women’s Mini Marathon is a national institution, beloved by women throughout the country, and every year brings enormous cultural, economic, and societal benefits to the city.

Entrepreneur Aimee Connolly has described the annual VHI Mini-Marathon as “the epitome of women coming together”. The founder of make-up brand Sculpted has been the brand ambassador for the 10km run through the streets of Dublin for the past three years and always takes part. “The support is unreal,” she said. “Women are cheering each other, both from the sidelines and those running with you, like, ‘Come on, we can do this’.
