Your race... your pace! 2024 will see a new line up of pacers supported by Charles Hurst. Applications are now open at https://forms.gle/xLvbEBzNzV2Qk7ZMA
Why should I run with an official pacer?
The Moy Park Belfast City Marathon and Half Marathon Pacing Team are experienced marathon runners who will encourage you throughout the 26.2 or 13.1 miles to help you meet your finisher time goal. It is also a great opportunity to run with a like-minded group and make your run more enjoyable.
Which pacer should I run with?
You should choose a pace that best reflects your training and ability level, allowing you to run at a comfortable pace throughout the marathon. If you can't decide between two paces (for example 3:00 and 3:15), it is recommended that you start with the slower pace as you can always pick it up later in the race.
How do I find my pacer at the Start Line?
There will be designated start areas for specific finish times and you can follow the signage to these positions. Look out for those big blue flags!
