Mayo.ie Western People Mionmharatón na mBan
Since its inauguration in 2010, the Mini-Marathon has grown to become one of the biggest events of its kind in the West of Ireland. Over the past ten years a combined 27,000 participants, including almost 5000 children, have taken part in the event. The Mayo.ie Western People Women’s Mini Marathon has had an estimated value of over €2.5 million to the economy of Castlebar and has raised in excess of €1 million for its charity partners.
The Mini-Marathon is open to girls and women of all ages and abilities, who wish to run, jog or walk the 10k route.
Both Mayo County Council and the Mayo Sports Partnership are steadfast in their support of an increased level of participation in sport among girls and women of all ages. The physical, mental and social benefits of taking part in any and all kinds of sports are well-documented and the Mini-Marathon is one of the centre piece events of the county’s sporting calendar.
As we enter a new decade and continue our celebration of 20x20 Women in Sport, we felt it only fitting that we give our event a bit of a makeover. A fresh new look for a new decade!
- Still the biggest women only 10KM event of its kind in the West of Ireland.
- Still taking place on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday – 3rd May 2020.
