Run a Marathon

In the past year some of you might have caught the other bug, the running one that is! Bring this healthy habit into 2021 and keep motivated with the various runs and marathons taking place across the country.

You might have always wanted to run or walk the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon or if you’re really up for it, the KBC Dublin Marathon. Both challenges are key  on the running calendar so what better way to challenge yourself than these much loved events. Like most events in 2020, both events went virtual and this helped many to take part than ever before!

Registration is now open for the 2021 VHI Mini- Marathon which you can run, walk or jog, from anywhere in the world on the 19th of September. Secure your place for the event and if you wish to support Merchants Quay Ireland get in touch with Maggie on 01 5240139 or email communityfundraising@mqi.ie to get a supporter pack. and we can provide you with everything you need to start fundraising to support Merchants Quay Ireland! This year, the theme is #PowerofMe and the event organisers have launched a dedicated app to help you keep track of your progress, who better to explain it than the Dirtbirds!

You can also use apps like Strava to train for your run, walk or jog, there are lots of routes people share while running and challenges to take part in virtually, do a 5 or 10k step into support Merchants Quay Ireland. Clock up the kms, feel great and get kudos from your crew while you do!

If you’re a running club you could do a virtual marathon and share your progress with your friends and family. It’s a great way to boost your motivation, your mental health and keep training until the official event dates for both the KBC Dublin Marathon and VHI Women’s Mini Marathon

There are many other virtual challenges happening throughout the year that you can get involved with too and you can raise funds in support of Merchants Quay Ireland.  If you’re feeling up for the challenge please get in touch with Maggie on 01 5240139 or email communityfundraising@mqi.ie to get a supporter pack.
