ARE YOU READY FOR A CHALLENGE? Join #teamCRY and be a part of the #PowerOf10
It’s been a really challenging year and we missed meeting #teamCRY in Searson’s, Baggot Street on the June Bank Holiday weekend for the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon – the mini marathon is the largest women’s event of its kind and we usually have 75+ of our families and friends taking part and fundraising on our behalf. Due to the restrictions from Covid_19 the event is going virtual and will take place from 1st to 10th October. You chose which date you take part on. You can do it over a number of days and finish up on the 10th October, or you can do the whole distance in any one of the days. It’s entirely up to you.
JOIN THE #POWEROF10 MOVEMENT
The very first Vhi Virtual Women’s Mini Marathon will invite everyone to live life to the #Powerof10 – 10k, 10 days, €10 million!
- 10 Days – Complete it between 1 October to 10 October

We want you to do it your way. With friends (following social distance guidelines), in your garden, in one go, or maybe you’d prefer to spread the distance over a few days. – you decide!

Choosing your route:
We strongly recommend that participants take part in a venue close to your home. Our best recommendation of a route begins at your own front door. If that is not possible, check out a local park or green space which is both safe and accessible. Take note if there are any special times slotted out for vulnerable and older members of our community and pick your time accordingly.
Let us know how you’ll be doing your 10k your way.
While the real world event has been cancelled for 2020 to ensure everyone’s safety, you can still be a part of this wonderful annual event with the virtual 10k event on #teamCRY.
We really appreciate your continued support at this difficult time all fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed due to Covid_19 regulations to ensure public safety.
