The Galway City Marathon organisers are delighted to offer charities a fundraising opportunity through the Galway City Mini Marathon. When a participant registers we will directly donate €5 net of VAT to that participant's chosen charity. It's that simple! In addition, the charity will provide you with an opportunity to fundraise for them via a sponsorship pack.

The mini-marathon course is fast, flat and achievable. It also runs on the same managed route as the full and half marathons, taking in Galway’s best loved landmarks on the way. The event is primarily aimed at the recreational runner or walker and is certainly a fun and healthy way to fundraise for your favourite charity.

Here's how it works:

  • Register for the mini-marathon on the charity registration page here
  • Select your charity from the dropdown list
  • Receive a sponsorship pack from the charity
  • Follow the charity's directions and return all funds directly to them
