The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists are extremely proud sponsors of the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon for the 5th year.
The VHI Women’s Mini Marathon which takes place every year on the June Bank holiday where over 20,000 women participate and raise millions for charities across the country. It has become a key event in the sporting calendar and the ISCP are delighted to be involved in it. Most importantly, it represents a huge opportunity for us to talk about the role of Chartered Physiotherapists in promoting physical activity amongst the population and also to promote Chartered Physiotherapists specific role in Women’s Health.
We get involved each year by writing press and blog content giving women advice on exercise which features in the Herald and the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon website, newsletters and race magazine. We are also mentioned regularly on the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon Women’s social media pages and we included updates on our own social media.
The Women’s Word Show Expo in the RDS is where we meet and advise participants, hold talks and demonstrations .
On the race day itself we run a Cool Down and Massage Tent. The Cool Down gives participants an opportunity to cool down from the marathon correctly with the help of Chartered Physiotherapists. The massage tent also gives women an opportunity to receive after race care.
The ISCP’s involvement each year is always a huge success but it would be nothing without the support of the members. We would like to sincerely thank all the volunteers who have helped out with Mini Marathon events in the past.
