The influencer and TV presenter told RTE at the time: “It’s a great buzz, June bank holiday weekend, generally the weather is good and people are there to do it for the right reasons.”

Doireann completed the marathon alongside her mother Clare.

Actress Aoibhin joined her sister on the 10k trek.

Taking to her Instagram, she wrote: “Just livin our best lives…what a day, what a buzz, what a gender women are!”

“Another @vhiwmm under the belt and a bank holiday Sunday well spent,” she posted.

“Congrats to all 30,000 women who participated today.”

Georgie was one of the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon ambassadors this year.

“It’s still a struggle at times but I take it one run at a time! It just shows it’s never too late to start something. Something just for you!”

Luci Vidal


Yogi and wellness influencer Luci Vidal ran the marathon in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.

The event was Luci’s first mini marathon, and she even managed to make it to Bulmer’s Forbidden Fruit Festival after the run, doing a quick outfit change to ditch her running shorts in favour of a stunning rose gold knit dress.
