Unleash Your Inner Hound!

dogs trust women's mini marathon

Listen up ladies; we need you to be all ears!  Registration for the VHi Women's Mini Marathon 2016 is now open and we need YOU on #TeamDogsTrust!

In 2015, we rehomed 2,957 dogs to loving forever homes. We also opened our new maternity wing in 2014, which cares for an additional 500 Mums and their puppies each year. This year our aim is to rehome as many dogs and puppies as we possibly can, and the VHi Women’s Mini Marathon is a vital source of income to help us achieve our goal. Every step that you take will be making a massive difference to the lives of so many dogs across Ireland.

So here’s what we would love you to do:

Go online to register at or fill out one of the application forms in the Evening Herald on Wednesday's and Saturday's.

When you receive your registration number; fill in your details here and we will send out your fabulous Dogs Trust "Woman's Best Friend" t-shirt, a car sticker and a super special gift too. This year to help put the FUN in fundraising, we’ve set you ladies a little challenge for race day. We want you to unleash your inner hound! There is a prize for best dressed, so get creative as no doubt the competition will be ruff with a chance to win a €100 One4All voucher.

Then, get sponsored! You can create your own fundraising page with JustGiving and choose Dogs Trust Ireland as your charity – so people can donate online too. It’s easy to share with your friends on email and social media, so you’ll reach more people and raise more for your cause. It makes our lives easier too – less paperwork means we can be more efficient and save money. Set up your JustGiving fundraising page via . Thank you!
