Women's Mini Marathon: The biggest all-women’s event of its kind
The biggest single day charity event in Ireland takes place on Monday, 7th June.
Last year the Women's mini-marathon in Dublin attracted 40,000 runners from all parts of the world and over a period of six years more than €123 million has been raised for charity and a total of over half a million women have run the race.
This year the event which is sponsored by Flora will begin at 3PM. The course is 10K and the race will begin at Fitzwilliam Square and will finish at St. stephen's Green.
It was a very wet day and I could not keep my lens dry so you will notice some streaks or white spots on some if not all of the photographs. Last year my camera developed a fault and the year before that I used the wrong lens so this is not my lucky event.
According to RTE about 40,000 women took part in this years 10Km mini-marathon. To me it looked more like 400,000 and I was in constant fear of being trampled to death.
Linda Byrne from Dundrum/South Dublin Athletic Club has won the 28th Flora women's mini-marathon in a time of 34 minutes 29 seconds.
In second place was Maria McCambridge from Letterkenny Athletics Club in a time of 34 minutes 31 seconds.
Teresa McGloin from Donegal Athletics Club finished in third position in a time of 34 minutes 36 seconds.
