There was a fantastic turnout at the Dublin 2016 Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon with nearly 35,000 women at this years event earlier this week.
Tipperary’s very own Siobhan O’Doherty was the first to cross the finish line with an amazing time of 34.30 and following close behind her for Second & Third place was Natasha Adams from Donegal in a time of 34.33 and Sarah Mulligan with a time of 35.28.

Speaking for the Women’s Mini Marathon, Kathy Endersen, CEO said: “Today has been a fantastic day for women and charities from all over Ireland.
“It’s very uplifting to see so many women walking, jogging and running together through the streets of Dublin today. We congratulate the winner Siobhan O’Doherty and runners up Natasha Adams and Sarah Mulligan who ran a great race.
The Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon is still the biggest all-women’s event of its kind in the world.
The first Women’s Mini Marathon began in Dublin in 1983 with 9,000 entrants and the event currently hosts just under 35,000 women.
Women from across the 32 counties of Ireland, U.K. and Europe take part each year to raise vital funds for their chosen charities and causes.
