VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

**Postponement of the 
2020 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon**


On the advice of the relevant statutory authorities, the 2020 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon, scheduled to take place on Sunday May 31st, will be postponed. We understand this is disappointing but it is in the best interest of the community.


This decision has been taken in light of the growing threat presented by COVID-19.


The event will be re-scheduled to Autumn. We will confirm the date in the coming days. 


The team at Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon will continue to liaise closely with the relevant statutory authorities regarding the staging of the event and will update all of our participants in the near future.


The health and safety of our participants is our priority, and we would like to thank you for your support and patience at this time.
