Go running in support of Third Age

Time: 2:00 PM

Location: Dublin City Centre

Go running in support of Third Age at this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

Third Age is a national voluntary organisation celebrating the third age in life when people may no longer be in paid employment but can remain healthy, fulfilled and continue to contribute to society. The longer people are encouraged to remain in this life stage, the better for older people themselves, their families, communities and society as a whole.

We are calling on people throughout the country to participate in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in aid of Third Age. 

This year the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon takes place on  Sunday, June 3. The course will be 10km long, and the event will take place in Dublin City Centre. The VHI Women’s Mini Marathon is the largest all female event of its kind in the world and the largest one day charity event in Ireland.

How can I get involved?
