Dublin City Centre was deserted,
yet full of expectation as the earliest participants
began to arrive at around 1 pm. for
the Mini-Marathon on the Holiday Monday 3 June 2011.
Tea-shirts of all colours and designs displayed
the multiple causes for which people were running or walking
.

The Dublin Women’s Mini Marathon
is the biggest event of its kind
in the world
and a marvellous celebration of energy,
enjoyment and  generosity
as women of all ages,
interests and sizes take on
the challenge and
fund raise for so many and
varied local charities.
