Belfast City Marathon

Thinking of taking on a challenge in 2017? Then why not sign-up for the Belfast City Marathon.

Every year, thousands of people from across Northern Ireland descend onto the streets of Belfast and this year we are calling on all you runners, joggers, walkers or anyone looking to take on a challenge to pull on a yellow running vest and join Team Friends this May.  For the super fit there is the full 26mile marathon, but if that's not for you then you can still be part of this great local event by getting some mates together for a relay team or take on the 8 mile walk through the city.  Here's what events you can take part in:

  • Full marathon run
  • Team relay
  • 8 mile walk
  • Fun run
  • Wheelchair race

No matter what you do or how far you go, every step will help us support local people affected by cancer.
