Have you ever dreamed of running a marathon, or even a half-marathon? Is there cycle you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t gotten around to yet?
Taking on a physical (and mental!) challenge is a wonderful way to support the Mater Foundation while having some fun. There are lots of events organised throughout the year that you can sign up to – and we’re here to help you in your fundraising!
VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon, 5 June 2017, Dublin
The VHI Women’s Mini-Marathon is the largest all-female event of its kind in the world and the largest one day charity event in Ireland. The mini-marathon is a 10 km (6.2 mile) event and attracts over 40,000 participants, many of whom choose to make a big difference for their chosen charity.
Joining the Mater Hospital Foundation’s 2017 Mini Marathon team is a wonderful way to improve care for very ill patients while having an amazingly rewarding day out in Dublin. Visit the event page for more information!
Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon, 12-13 August 2017, Dublin
Since 1998, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series has made running fun by infusing the course with live bands, cheer teams, and creating a block-party atmosphere for participants and spectators. Fuelled by each runner’s journey, we celebrate running and all of the moments worth running for. Join the half-marathon in 2017 as the Half-Marathon celebrates 20 years running!
