Flora Mini Marathon – Dublin 2010
Image by infomatique
Over 40,000 run women’s mini-marathon.
It was a very wet day and I could not keep my lens dry so you will notice some streaks or white spots on some if not all of the photographs. Last year my camera developed a fault and the year before that I used the wrong lens so this is not my lucky event.
According to RTE about 40,000 women took part in this years 10Km mini-marathon. To me it looked more like 400,000 and I was in constant fear of being trampled to death.
Linda Byrne from Dundrum/South Dublin Athletic Club has won the 28th Flora women’s mini-marathon in a time of 34 minutes 29 seconds.
In second place was Maria McCambridge from Letterkenny Athletics Club in a time of 34 minutes 31 seconds.
Teresa McGloin from Donegal Athletics Club finished in third position in a time of 34 minutes 36 seconds.

HANDBAG LADY IN THE DUBLIN MINI MARATHON – 2008
Image by infomatique
More than 40,000 women from around the country and the world gathered at Fitzwilliam Square in Dublin this afternoon for the annual Flora Mini-Marathon.
Annette Kealy from Howth in Co Dublin won this year’s race when she crossed the finish line at St Stephen’s Green in a time of 35 minutes and 45 seconds.
It is an extra special day for the mother-of-four from the Raheny-Shamrock running club as she is celebrating her 40th birthday.
I was there taking photographs and I must admit that seeing 40,000 women in the same place at the same time is an amazing sight and a very noisy experience but it was great fun. To give you some idea just how big this really was I am uploading photographs showing the rows of buses parked along the grand canal, there must not have been a bus left for anything else throughout the island of Ireland.
