Monaghan Sports Partnership virtual Women’s Mini Marathon event-
Monaghan Sports Partnership introduces its new initiative aimed at females in County Monaghan – to take part in a virtual 5km or 10km walk / run to celebrate the European Week of Sport and promoting the 20×20 Women in Sport campaign.
What is a virtual mini marathon? Basically this means that you do not attend a physical event at a specific time or place – you complete the distance of your choice at a venue of your choice – it could be starting from your own front door on a local route, in a local park or on a walking / running track.
You can complete the distance on any day during the European Week of Sport (23rd-30th September) at a time of your choice.
All participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt and a specially commissioned finishers medal.
So why not start your active campaign today and get out walking or jogging and take part in this special event! Encourage your family members or friends to take the challenge with you and make it special.
All proceeds from the event will go to Monaghan Cancer Societies.
Participating numbers are limited and online registration is open until Friday 21st August
