Run to Remember, run for research and support local people

The Mash Direct Belfast City Half Marathon is the largest Half Marathon event in Northern Ireland and has seen a massive growth, selling out for 4 years in a row.

The race will start in Ormeau Park and take in the South, East, North and West of the city, including a new section in the East which will use more of the greenway instead of Sydenham Bypass, before travelling through Victoria Park and into the Titanic Quarter.

This 13.1 mile route is ideal for first time Half Marathon entrants or a great progressionary route for those who have completed a 10K or Team Relay distance from the Mash Direct Belfast City Marathon and want to set a new distance goal.

Entry Requirements: Participants must be over 17 years old to enter the Half Marathon. All participants must complete the Half Marathon in less than 3 hours.

This event is now sold out but if you have already secured your place please consider running to raise funds for us!
