Now in its 18th year the Limerick Women’s Mini Marathon is firmly established as the premier women’s running event in Limerick and the Midwest.
Over 3000 women of all ages and abilities will participate in this event on Sunday of the October Bank Holiday Weekend.
This event is synonymous with charities from all over the Midwest for fundraising. Many of the women will run, walk or jog to raise much needed funds for their respective charities.
This event attracts participants from all over the mid west region with some marathon and athletic enthusiasts travelling from further afield.
The race itself offers two distances. Participants can choose from either a 10KM or a 5km route. Both routes start & finish on the grounds of the University of Limerick. This event has become a household event as women run or walk while some push their babies in their buggies. Other family members attend on the day to support their wives, sisters, girlfriends or friends.
