Limerick Athletic Club has organised and hosted the Limerick Women’s Mini Marathon since 1998. From humble beginnings, with fewer than 400 participants in the early years, the event has grown exponentially to 3,000 entries.

Now an established race on the athletics calendar, the race is open to women of all ages and all fitness levels, from wheel chair athletes, walkers and joggers to more experienced athletes. It is also important to note that this event attracts participants from all over the Mid-West region, with some marathon and athletic enthusiasts travelling from even further afield.

The race itself is 8km and starts and finishes on the grounds of the University of Limerick. The Mini Marathon is very much a household/family event: some women run or walk, while others push their babies in their buggies…and the family dog is also welcome! Other family members attend on the day to support their wives, sisters, girlfriends or friends.

An Official Goody Bag will be given to each of the 3,000 participants. The bags are women-only. Distribution takes place at the UL Arena at Registration, when participants also pick up their Race Numbers and Official Tee-Shirts.
