We really want to encourage as many women as possible to come out and have fun on the day. You can download training programmes for walking and running the event from the website above. All participants will be chip timed so the elite runners will get an accurate time and the event is AAI measured and certified. Come out and support this first mini marathon for Tipperary’

Valerie Connolly, Co-ordinator, South Tipperary Sports Partnership commented ‘ I am delighted to part of this new women in sport initiative in Tipperary as it is a great opportunity for women of all ages to get active and take part in the first women’s mini marathon to be held in County. All finishers will receive a race medallion and goody bag. There will also be spot prizes on the day. The event also provides a great opportunity for participants to raise funds for their own local charities.’
