The Irish Times - Tuesday - Health - - Outdoor Events -

If you and a gang of girlfriends are look­ing for an al­ter­na­tive ac­tiv­ity to do to­gether, there is a grow­ing col­lec­tion of women-only events. The 10km VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in Dublin on June 5th(vhi­wom­ensmin­i­marathon.ie) is a peren­nial favourite but there are other op­tions such as the 10km Newry & Mourne Women’s mini marathon on July 23rd (26ex­treme.com). And Gaelforce runs two women-only ad­ven­ture races around Kil­lary Fjord in Gal­way on July 22nd and Wick­low on Au­gust 19th (gaelforceevents.com).

An­other op­tion is the The Women with Alti­tude festival from May 12th-14th in Tol­ly­more, Co Down (wom­en­with­alti­tude.ie). This Moun­taineer­ing Ire­land ini­tia­tive aims to help women take on greater chal­lenges in moun­taineer­ing, be it nav­i­gat­ing, climb­ing or gen­eral hik­ing skills.
