She said she was looking forward to taking part on 24th September for the first time. Ciara wished the organisers every success with the event.
This year the mini marathon will be starting at a slightly earlier time of 10.45am and also has a new flatter route around Clonmel.
This is a wonderful event for women and is open to walkers, joggers and runners of all abilities and mobility.
Registration is now open on www.tippminimarathon.ie and registration is both online and postal.
The mini marathon provides a great opportunity for participants to raise funds for their own local charities and there is a charitable donation of €200 to the largest group to register that is raising funds for charitable causes.
Details of local Meet and Train or Fit 4 Life running groups are available on the website to help participants to train.
Participants will receive a technical tee-shirt sponsored by LIT Tipperary.
All finishers will receive a specially designed race medallion. Spot prizes will also be distributed on the day.
All participants will be chip timed and the event is AAI measured and certified.
