Every year the Women's Mini Marathon brings thousands of women from all over Ireland and overseas out onto the streets of Dublin and 2002 was no different.
A manic Monday for many on the streets of Dublin. The women's mini marathon attracted thousands.
The 10-kilometre event is the biggest all female event of its kind anywhere in the world. The race is traditionally a major focus for charity fundraising with €4 million generated in 2001. Reporter Eamon Horan meets some of the women (and men dressed as women) taking part in the race.
The race was won by Pauline Curley from county Offaly in a time of 34 minutes and 20 seconds. Speaking to RTÉ News following her win Pauline says
The 35,000 women that are taking part here are all winners. We're all winners today.
