This year the Flora Women's Mini Marathon is celebrating 30 years of family health, fun and fitness and to mark the occasion, Flora is running a competition to find families from all over the country that have made the event an integral part of their lives.
Entitled 'Flora Families', the competition is searching for the networks of mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, sisters-in-law and mothers-in-law who have made the Flora Women's Mini Marathon part of their lives by encouraging each other to participate and making it an annual event in their family calendar.
Applicants should provide details of their 'Flora Family Tree' which outlines those in their family who have taken part in the event over the years, as well as including a description of how the experience has impacted on their lives as a family.
The winner of the 'Flora Families' competition will be announced at the start line on race day and they will receive a five-star weekend break along with €1,000 for the charity of their choice. Two runner-up 'Flora Families' will also receive a weekend break and €500 for the charity of their choice.
To help you on your training journey for race day, we are delighted to unveil a new, even tastier Flora spread which means that healthy eating is now even more delicious than ever before. And the best news is that our new tastier spread has 80pc less saturated fat than butter -- the perfect spread option for you and your family.
