Join Team MADRA and Run for Rescue Dogs!

Are you ready to lace up your running shoes for a pawsome cause? Support MADRA as you take on the VHI 10k Mini Marathon on Sunday, June 2nd, 2024! This electrifying event isn’t just about crossing the finish line—it’s about making a difference in the lives of hundreds of dogs in need. 

Why Run for MADRA?

  • Make a Real Impact: Every step you take and every euro you raise will directly support MADRA’s mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome over 500 dogs each year. From medical bills to shelter running costs, your fundraising efforts will ensure that every pup gets a second chance at a loving home.
  • Join the Movement: The VHI Mini Marathon is not just the biggest women’s race in the world—it’s a celebration of strength, solidarity, and sisterhood. Whether you walk, jog, or run, you’ll be surrounded by an electric atmosphere and a supportive community.
  • Wear MADRA Colours: When you register with MADRA and raise €50 or more, we’ll send you an exclusive MADRA t-shirt as a token of our appreciation. Wear it with pride as you train, race, and champion the cause of rescue dogs across Ireland.
