The 30th Evening Echo WOMEN’S MINI MARATHON takes place on Sunday 25th of September 2011 at 1pm. An estimated 11,000 “Ladies” are expected to participate in what has become the biggest Ladies event outside of Dublin. Charities from all over Ireland use the annual event as a fundraiser for some very worthy causes.
Head for Center Park Road and look for hordes of Ladies and Laddies who, on any other Sunday afternoon, might raise more than an eyebrow or two. The race (event) itself starts at 1pm from the City end of Centre Park Road covering a four-mile course, which takes in The Marina, Blackrock Village, Ballintemple, Monahan Road and finishes in Kennedy Park. Whether you’re an elite athlete, a runner, jogger, walker, fancy dresser, cross dresser or just a Sunday stroller, have a FUN day out and don’t forget to pick up your goodie bag.
