In pictures: Thousands turn out for Women's Mini Marathon in Dublin

Over 30,000 people took part in this year’s event.

THERE WAS A huge turnout for the 2017 VHI Women’s Mini Marathon, with over 30,000 people taking part in the annual event, which is in its 35th year.

Runners, joggers and walkers converged on Fitzwilliam Street Upper for the 10km course at 2pm — all participating in the name of charity.

Ann-Marie McGlynn from Strabane, Co. Tyrone came home in first place in a time of 33:55, while Sinead Kane from Youghal, Co. Cork won the Visually Impaired Category in a time of just over 46 minutes.

Here’s some footage of the participants taking off earlier this afternoon:

There was plenty of colour and positive vibes throughout the day and some interesting costumes as well.

Here’s a selection of the images that best captured the atmosphere of it all.
